Do you have paperwork in an ever-expanding pile? Maybe it has over-grown your in-tray or the designated place on your desk. Or perhaps your organisational skills do not include an in-tray or a designated place in the first place! You may even have more than one pile. Some people's piles only part for a path from the door to the desk, fridge, or window. Whatever piles you have waiting to be sorted, here is a simple way to get started.

First of all, designate a day and time to start the task. "When I'll have time" is just too much of an opt-out. Instead, we can schedule a specific day and time, such as "this Friday from 10 till 11". Do not worry if this time is not enough. Remember, we are just getting started. Waiting till you have a whole weekend to deal with it is pretty much like waiting forever. Doing one bit at a time gets the task done without the massive overwhelm or sacrificing big chunks of your time.

Secondly, pick a part of the pile or piles that you can realistically start to work on. For example, you may choose to work on the bit under the desk on the right, or the little pile on the window sill.

Thirdly, write this in your diary. When we write a goal or a mini-goal down, it cements our intention and determination to carry it out. For example in the Friday in your diary, you can write "10-11" and next to it write "clear the pile under the desk".

If you would like to turbo-charge your pile-sorting and do it with even greater ease, you can tap for each step along the way. If you do not EFT-tap as yet, you can download a free guide from many internet resources and get started. If you already do EFT, tapping suggestions include:

"Even though I can't find an hour in which to get started, I deeply love and accept myself."

"Even though I can't decide which part of the pile to start on, I allow inspiration to come to me."

Then all you have to do is follow the instruction in your diary. You can briefly also tap at the start of the task to get you going. For example, you can tap "Even though this is so boring, the sooner I'm done, the sooner it's over. And that's OK".

After completing this mini-goal, schedule the next one in exactly the same way. Step-by-step, you can get there with ease.
