Summer daze in Maine are the best and I am looking forward to enjoying many more of them beginning August 1st ... and on my own time and in my own way. "Own" is the operative word.
Cleaning out my office is more of a major deal than I had anticipated. What I no longer need to keep is easy and can go in the recyling bin. It's the "other" that takes more thought and consideration. Do I pass this on to one of my staff or a colleague at another campus? Do I keep this for myself and if I do, what am I going to do with it? When that is my biggest concern of the day, we're doing good!
And, there are even more files to go through and clean out. Why do we keep so much "stuff"? ...because we think we will use it, and many times we do and as many times we don't. But, it is what we do.
I have not even given thought to cleaning out my email! That's a whole other matter for another time. In the meantime, it sits on my "to do " list.
And so it goes....
