Getting Into Gear

Filed Under: OM Gosh!

By Suzanne O'Connor

After the Fall and Holiday shopping madness that normally descends on us here, I usually shut down for a week or two to try and recoup. Recouping and resting after Christmas has been firmly on my schedule for the last 10 years. But family was in town and things were scheduled and I didn’t rest.

Trying to gear down after being in 5th gear for 3 months may sound like an easy thing, but the truth is, not always. I had a lot on my plate this year and was all over the place trying to get things done. Multi-tasking is a known brain killer.

First, I had oral surgery with anesthesia which left me goofy for over a week. Then my daughter had the flu, which I have still mostly avoided by slamming vitamins, immune system boosting drinks. I also scheduled in 3 yearly medical tests and exams at offices all over L.A. And to top it off, I was running around sleep deprived and had to stop drinking coffee.

Now, my fuzzy, un-caffeinated brain just would not kick into gear. For the first time, in a very long time, I’m unorganized in every way.

All end of year business organization has not occurred yet. The cleaning out of my desk and office didn’t happen. File cleanouts, updating contacts and computer files cleanup hasn’t happened yet. Some computer updates did happen only because I’m married to a computer geek who made sure they happened. Getting organized just didn’t happen for me this year. And I really like to be organized.

But now that the sun is finally out, I’m better focused and more energized. So though I’ve started the year awkwardly, I’m gonna kick it into gear, get focused and am reviving up to get things done in 2017. That’s what I keep telling myself anyhow. Best foot forward!
