Paralysis of analysis and other cliche's

My desk, 8 a.m. 1-4-12
In a reversal of my usual habit of making sure my desktop is nice and clean and neat before I leave the office for a few days, I deliberately dumped all my "do later" "for the future" and "to file" piles on my desk before I left for holiday vacation. Now, two weeks later, I'm facing the music.

My first day back to work was yesterday, but the whole day was spent in meetings, staff updates, craft village construction considerations and planning the 2013 calendar of events. So now, I'm looking at the pile (or actually, turned sideways to the pile.) My brain wants to make a plan to deal with this, or work around it. After all, I really need to make a to-do list and return 13 phone calls and find out if my Saturday class made and I have end of the month reports due .... I could justifiably avoid the pile for another day, or 6.

Or, I could "Just Do It" and really dig into the pile and have an energized fresh start this afternoon.
