82 pages

82 pages. Bigger than some of my favorite books. Going in recycle as fast as I can dump it, unless I decide it's kindling for my fireplace. I feel awful this morning, who knows why. I am finding it impossible to focus on the important work I urgently need to start, let alone finish. It is just not happening.

So I'm doing what I can, sorting paperwork, filing. And WOW, I came across the 82-page instructions for a phone I let go two weeks ago.

So much space in my cabinet. And 1/4 of the pile sitting at my desk, gone in a sneeze. 

And it's clearing my head.

Don't discount the tedious stuff, or the less-important stuff. The positive effect is cumulative.

Good for you Lauren,

Rather than wallow in your temporary inability to focus you are tackling a noteworthy task! Good for you!!

I cannot even imagine what a phone could do that needed 82 pages of instructions unless it had a lot of photos and extra big print.

Lauren Williams, CPO, CVPO I bet I also still have a few instruction manuals I no longer need.

82 pages for a phone......count me out Lauren!  Geez!! Talk about over kill.  But I say that about a lot of stuff.  I am the queen of passing things forward (good stuff) to other folks who will enjoy and appreciate them.  Just not an 82 page phone instruction post!

hi Lauren- I do not like a lot of paper so I'm constantly trying to eliminate it.

Kathy Streib I've gone through stages. Used to only have paper, then "it depended," now I'm trying for almost no paper. Maybe it's the difference between a big apartment, big houses, tiny apartment 😬 Lauren

Endre Barath, Jr. When my son was very little, I could give him a treat by letting him use the shredder. I am really starting to think you need to connect with colleagues of mine in NAPO LA. It's our flagship chapter. 😉 Lauren
