I’ve been debating with myself the ‘clean desks’ policy for the renovated Diocesan Office. At the moment it has computers but no desks and chairs. That really suits me. I used to believe that you could make phone calls faster standing up – maybe the same could apply to meetings? Tho’ to be honest, I’m having one of those phases when I can’t quite get on top of the administration. The residual clutter in my e mail Inbox won’t reduce below about 60. And ditto on my desk is obstinately present. It’s not a backlog. More a layer of stuff which doesn’t quite seem to know where it is going to – and it doesn’t go away. I suppose I should chuck it out and start clear. Nobody seems to be looking for it so it will not be missed.
