3 in 30 Challenge - November 2011, week 4

Here's my update for week 4.  Good progress has been made so I'm calling this month a success.  

Goal 1: I've got behind on the paperwork relating to my work so by the end of this month I want to have cleared the backlog and sorted out an achievable routine for keeping up-to-date.
Week 1 update: I'm about half way through the backlog and should have it all cleared by the end of next week.
Week 3 update: I'm just about up to date on this. All the backlog is cleared and I'm trying to manage a system for staying on top of things.
Week 4 update: The backlog is completely cleared and I've decided how and when to do the paperwork in the future. I've managed to keep on top of things this week so am feeling quietly confident that this new system will be a keeper!

Goal 2: Another sort of decluttering but this time with the computer. I need to clear out loads of obsolete bookmarks and documents and set in place an achievable routine for backing up files.
Week 1 update: I've been steadily working through the bookmarks but still have loads to do. This is a fairly simple task and I've been doing it during the TV adverts!
Week 3 update: I've still got loads to do on this one. I haven't made any significant progress in the last two weeks mainly due to problems with internet access. I think this goal will have to continue next month as I can't see how I'll get it finished by the end of November.
Week 4 update: I'm still plodding through these but there is no way I'll get them finished this month.  Christmas performance start next week so I'll be working longer hours and won't have the time to devote to this.  I'm calling this a partial success.

Goal 3: I have a list of small DIY jobs to complete which will make life easier but I never get round to doing them. Nothing major, just things like oiling a lock, adjusting the hinges on a couple of kitchen cupboards and a few checks which need to be done before winter sets in.
Week 1 update: I haven't started this one yet. I hope to do a couple of tasks this week.
Week 3 update: I'm about half way through the list so I'm still hoping to be finished by the end of the month.
Week 4 update: All done. Another success.
