I've never coordinated an office move before, so it's only fitting that my first one is so complicated (co-habitate with new owners, move to temporary space, move to new space once it's renovated by the City). I'm trying to figure out all the details, cramming our current operation into half the space, purchasing a new phone system, coordinating the information technology, finding parking downtown and keeping the staff inspired and positive. (Guess which of the above is the most challenging.)
The good news is: yesterday we officially sold our building! Now we can actually AFFORD to move!
And since I'm trying to downsize my own mess at home, my at-work life and at-home life are eerily similar. It's all about THROWING CRAP AWAY. But before you can toss something, you need to peruse it. Meaning it's very time consuming.
My advice: Don't keep anything.
I don't have time to take a real lunch hour, so I'm taking a few minutes to unwind by blogging. Today I had to do a bunch of research on inappropriate use of email and computer systems, so it seems only fitting that I take advantage of my work computer for personal use, which I almost never do.
Now back to reconciling the parade general ledger before the year-end close . . . woohoo!
