To watch this video, click on the link in the window for it to play in YouTube. In my search for my next personal motivator I found this video. This is about a football team that has a bit of a challenge with confidence. The team they are facing is a winning team. What do these boys have to face? The challenge is to overcome themselves!
In my life, I am at a point that I want to quit after I’ve had such a good start. The box of Trip Envelopes on the table yet to be dealt with is enormous. The box on the floor with more papers in it is just as large. I’m going to go “One more piece of paper and one more trip envelope”. I’m going to give this my best. Everything in me. I will succeed in getting this horrid project finally done by the deadline I have set for myself.
The above bit was done last night before I finally called it a day and went to bed.
Today – February 7, 2010 – I finished all of the bank reconciliation deeds I needed to do, labeled all the folders for April so they are ready for tomorrows challenge, AND I even got the household data entry done for April and the associated bank statements reconciled. I set my timer for 4 hours and FINISHED with 4 minutes and 36 seconds to go yet on the timer. Woo Hoo. I’m on fire!
I have some errands to run today. Indira, your Stampin’ Up! box came on Friday afternoon so I’m off to the post office to send it on to you. I’ve got some Mojo going so laundry is going to be dealt with, and I’ll even get the house vacuumed and swept. Heck, I might even get the kitchen and bathroom floors washed too.
It feels so good to actually see the progress I’m making in this monster of a task.
This is the box below the table. Each month whatever mail comes in is stuffed into a file folder for the month.
As I weed through the monthly folder and separate out the business documents (Settlement Sheets, Corporate Lodging receipts, bank statements) the folder gets smaller and smaller. What is left in the folder in the box under the table is only household stuff. The business stuff gets worked at and put under my computer table in the plastic bin. Eventually I will have to purchase two plastic bins to store the 2010 documents in, but that will be later.
Did I tell you that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Dymo Labeler? I think i have, but it is worth repeating.
This one has the ability to print postage but I haven’t figure out how to use the online postage program that prints the postage labels. That is what postage stamps are for anyway. If I really need to have something shipped I use the Post Office Click-n-Ship feature. That I can do.
This is my work for tomorrow. The April loads and Settlement Sheets. This will be longer than 4 hours to do. It will be another long day to slog through each one of the envelopes with tons of receipts.
The box with the Trip Envelopes yet to do is leaning forward now instead of standing straight.
Progress, it feels so good 🙂
