Monday Motivation: Taking Care Of The Little Jobs
I was feeling a bit overwhelmed this past weekend by a lot of little things that needed to be done.
You know, little things like sprucing up the flower pots on the front porch, changing the AC filter, and sewing a button on a sweater.
None of them are large jobs, but too many of these little jobs pile up and feel like one big burden. I guess they become a burden because I let them be a burden - I let them be a heavy weight in my life and grab the focus away from what I should be focusing on.
My solution? I put them in their place. I put each item on a list and then scheduled a time to complete the task just like I make an appointment for a dentist appointment. So even though I haven't completed any of these tasks yet I know when it will happen and I'm OK with that.
I'm free to focus on really important things without those distractions. What can you put on your list?
