I’ll get around to it…

Do you have projects around the house that you just don’t get to? I have many. These mostly small tasks seem to stare me in the face for quite sometime, before I actually get around to doing them; and the bigger the task the bigger the stare! The mental capacity of putting off a task can often be worse than actually doing the task itself. So I have to ask myself…why do I put things off?

Of course there are the usual reasons: time, energy, other responsibilities and distractions, but lets be honest, some of these projects would take five minutes tops.

Yesterday I cleaned my office, not just cleaned but organized to the point that I gave myself a headache. The result is amazeballs! Instead of a room full of clutter, everything is put in it’s place, and that creates a feeling of order and peace.

One of the small side tasks I did, was sharpen all my pencils that have been sitting on my desk for over a year, it’s been a little source of aggravation every time I grab one by accident when I go to write something, but now I am freed from that process! And it literally took five minutes from my day.

Anyhow, I thought I’d set you all a challenge this weekend…

Do one thing that has been bugging you. It can be as small as sharpening a few pencils, or as large as sorting out a whole room; whatever the size I promise it’ll make you feel great, and make your life just a little bit less hectic :) Let me know how you go on.

    Filing and shredding are my least favorite tasks. It’s like being on a diet. The process may not be very fun, but it’s worth it in the end. I guess I’d better follow your lead, and head into the office this weekend for a good shred-fest…
