Grabbing the timer and giving it a try.

15 minute rounds -
#1 - Menu planning for ingredients onhand that need to be cooked. Darn good chicken & Meatloaf. Also looked up serving size & calories for couple other dishes on hand. That 15 minute round went fast! The timer is an unforgiving mindless task master. :lol:
#2 -Paper - gathered daily gross receipts, recorded in xlsx, scanned/filed digitally and papers put into shred stack. Did 8 days worth which shows me there are 2 days of receipts missing. hum....wonder where they are buried? I was surprised this paperwork focus felt good after expecting it to be yucky. Overwhelming tasks do that to me until they are broken down into do-able pieces. It feels good to make progress.

#3 - paperwork. The floor shows papers that have been processed, but the desk pile doesn't look any smaller. But 15 minutes of effort has been accomplished!
