Mt. Vernon Method

I opened my inbox today and found a very appealing email message regarding the application of the Mt. Vernon Method in the mode of organization. Click to find out more.

This really inspired me because at work, after taking a leave for 78 days, I feel that I am at the point where it seems that all the folders and papers in my table and in the vault are just about to fall on me! There is just too much to do, too much to file, too much to update. Just thinking that I need to update about 3,000 disorganized folders and index cards by month's end in order to turn-over part of my job to a colleague is driving me crazy! Blame it on the lack of time, the lack of able assistance and my own limitations in terms of carrying heavy bulks of folders (couldn't do it for the whole nine months of pregnancy and now due to my post-operation). But I need to give it a try, otherwise...

Anyway, I'm willing to start small. I've already taken steps to simplify parts of my work life such as getting rid of duplicate files by using a software I downloaded from the internet. I have also cleaned up my drawers! And then today, I'm gathering up the courage to go to the vault and start organizing, little by little, the folders there...yup, all 3,000 of them.

Small steps, small steps. That's my game plan now. Wish me luck!
