A liturgy for ordering of a study…

Came across this today and just loved it. And so timely too as I wade my way through a week’s worth of junk mail, begging letters, 43 answering machine messages where the person just hung up, a pile of post-it notes with scribbled words and numbers which mean nothing to me whatsoever but they’re in my handwriting so must have been me, piles of things-to-go-to-church, things-to-be-filed, things-to-be-recycled, things-to-be-shredded, and things-yet-to-be-decided-where-they-belong. But first I think I shall amalgamate all the To Do lists into one giant To Do list, the epitome of To Do lists, the doyen, the king, the zenith of all To Do lists.

  1. I like the methodology used by Inspector Frost. He had a LBW – Let the buggers wait- file. If it did not feel important to him, it could go in there until the sender followed it up with a call or another note. If they didn’t, he reckoned, it wasn’t important anyway.
    But then, if you have seen the series you will know that he is hardly a shining example of how to deal with routine admin.

  2. So if I use this liturgy, will my study be tidy by the end of it? If it is, I shall claim it as the century’s great miracle.
