I find ...

that just doing 2 or 3 things/day is working out well for me. I just keep a mental check list of little chores etc. Just focus on one thing at a time though. It’ll get done. I’m also going to simplify a few things:

less traffic out of my chequing account – easier to keep track
do a mental rehearsal of asking for receipts when out and about and buying stuff. This works very well, apparently our minds don’t know the difference between reality and fantasy.
Take another inventory of my art supplies, I’ve bought plenty over the last few months.

I can do this.


Sorting this stuff out

When I’m actually sitting at my desk working, yes, I have to concentrate on the book, or item in my hand while I edit or create a MARC record for it, the risk of error is incredible when someone at work walks by and says hello. Although this is worth the risk, I work with lovely people – I’m so blessed.

I just check my work for errors, simply by scanning the item’s barcode and making sure that the bibliographic detail is correct. The return rate of catalogued items is almost nil.

When I’m learning (which is constant) it’s more realistic to work on 3 or 4 things max at a time, otherwise I would take forever. Still working on the reading issues.

At work

I tend to focus on one thing at a time at work otherwise I just get too mixed up.

Not realistic

I have to focus on more than one thing at a time, because I have to learn many things for my job. So maybe 3 or 4 things at a time.
