Weekend Fun: My Ironic Home Office

It's been a month now since my wife and I moved to San Antonio. I've been on the road most or all of the last four weeks… so my home office is still very unsettled. Today, I'm working on that while listening (plug alert) to my college buddy John Sandfort's new jazz CD.

I am decluttering… discovering boxes I haven't open yet (there's my belts!!) and trying to Sort and Set in Order (ah, 5S).

Ironically, this old sign is cluttering up my office. I should just trash it, give it to a client, or do some sort of blog reader contest to give it away (with a copy of  Lean Hospitals  or Healthcare Kaizen?). I should use it first. :-)

    Long ago, after my third corporate move in less than 5 years, I realized that I had some real office and home office boxes that I still hadn’t unpacked since the first move. In a fit of bravado that perhaps presaged my diving into lean, I just threw them out – unopened. I figured if I hadn’t needed them in two subsequent moves, they must not be valuable. I occasionally wonder what was in them, but I still haven’t missed anything.
