OK, so this should have been the challenge for February, March, April…. But no, I procrastinated. Ha ha! (see, we’re already most of the way through the first week of the month before I got around to posting this. Just by way of an example).
Anyway, this is the story of my life. And probably yours too, I’ll bet. I know from many years of experience that once I start those things, they’ll take little time and not much more effort. And yet, oh it takes so long to get started.
So, this month I’m challenging myself to clear the overflowing Basket of Doom. Full of admin stuff I’ll get round to (oh yes? when exactly? some of it has been there for not weeks, not months but YEARS) and mending (those pesky clothes moths, don’t you just love them). Maybe I’ll even move on to the overflowing Filing Tray of Doom too.
I read a post about procrastination by Leo on Zen Habits (an interesting blog, I always enjoy reading and thinking about his posts), and it spurred me on to get started. Yes, really. I’ve already done a few teeny tiny things. And no, I’m not going to tell you what or when. Just if, and only at the end of the month.
You could join in if you like. Do you have a Basket / Drawer / Desk / Shelf of Doom?
We could eat cake afterwards to celebrate our triumphs. Or not.
