The reason for listing them, is so that you can take action on them, I had to start a column in the center to group annoyances that were related. Some of them are long term, others can be taken care of in a day. Some pleasurable (manicure, pedicure), some not so much (unclogging the drain in the guest bedroom, cleaning out the refrigerator, washing the floors, laundry, ironing). So every time you find yourself looking at something and thinking, I need to get to that, and don't do anything about it, it's like clutter in your brain, and it will start to slow you down.
So let me help you get started....
- sew on that button on those pants you never wear because they have no button
- Final touches on a garment that is 98% finished
- Empty out garbage bins
- Clean the bathrooms
- Pluck stray hairs
- Practice buttonholes
You can assign yourself 1 a day or just power through the list as you banish those annoyances. If you can group them and give yourself a deadline. It's a fun exercise and can jump start motivation. Also don't forget to treat yourself when you've tackled some of these items. A walk in a park, or the beach, a vanilla ice cream cone dipped in chocolate, a soak in the tub, 10 minutes a night reading a book, try out some of those body products you've been hoarding, make yourself a cup of tea and have it in that fancy china you never use, go to a high end store and snoop shop (don't forget to take your camera and post pics).
