April Fool’s Day was yesterday, which signifies (at least in my mind) that the U.S. income tax filing deadline isn’t far behind. April 15th is almost here – a date that strikes dread in the hearts of Americans. Even the carrot of a possible refund isn’t enough to motivate most of us to proactively tackle the paperwork in a timely fashion.
If you haven’t started your tax preparation, START NOW! Clear a space on the table or floor (one that doesn’t need to be used for a few days), grab a recycling container (or garbage can), a timer, and your pile/bin/box of papers. Set the timer for 15 minutes and proceed to do a quick sort of as much paper as you can on your flat space, being sure to weed out any non-essential papers.
If you are still gaining ground when the timer goes off, continue! If you are spinning your wheels than walk away and come back later – set the timer and continue where you left off in the last round.
