Removing the clutter

I find it amazing that I always have 15 pages of notes and lists of things for me to do. I have a blog with no purpose other than to be a list of things that I have to do, and I almost always have access to update it. Even if I don't I have access shortly after having written something down on a piece of paper, so it shouldn't be hard to do.

Lately I've been very negligent at organizing myself and have had lots of papers lying around. I decided today to go through and organize. I have already thrown away about 30 pages of paper that I was keeping for maybe one or two lines on them. I still have another 30 or more pages to go through. At the very least I'll feel a lot more organized at the end of the day. I wonder if that will help ease the feeling of being overwhelmed that I've had lately. Now I have a clear list of things I need to do and I can start attacking them one at a time.

I'll write more on here later about the ways that I organize.
