Oh, Wendii! Thank you - it seems like our Mondays were in TOTAL alignment. It was also nice to see that (almost) all the things I do in that case are helpful to others.
I will add that I also 'Do Something I Can Succeed At'. This could be clearing my desk, but I like to have some easy task, that I have probably put off because it IS so easy, that I can accomplish. It gives me a check off on my 'to do' list and that sense of accomplishment can often fuel something more productive.
