Fit of Organizational Mania

I inevitably start the year with good intentions. I've finished shredding the 1999 files from the file drawer and started going through the desk drawer. The shredder is getting a good workout. This should enable me to get my study into some kind of respectable shape, too, since there are things lying around my desk there which can go into the 2009 files.

I bought a new planner (since the old one was falling apart) and I need to get that set up. Calendar management takes up way too much of my time.

I also have things to take to recycling (#5 plastics go to Whole Foods, as our recycling service doesn't take them) and things to list on freecycle and so on.

Unfortunately, these fits of organizational mania tend to run themselves out in days. If I could only get them to last a month or two, I'd achieve anti-entropy nirvana.
