I am a great procrastinator. I know, shameful. I have read that we perfectionists are also very good at procrastination because we don't want to start anything until we have everything else perfect, or at least have all the perfect tools to do the job. Sound familiar?
I started thinking of the little household tasks that I put off everyday. How long do these everyday chores actually take?
Here are a few of the task that I do daily that I am going to time just to see how long they actually take.
I am doing this in hopes of making me realize it is much easier to just get to it rather than to keep procrastinating.......
MAKE THE BED
UNLOAD DISHWASHER, LOAD IT; WIPE DOWN KITCHEN COUNTERS AND SINK
USE SWIFFER ON The Hardwood Floors
GIVE BATHROOM A ONCE OVER LIGHTLY
(No, I do not dress like this for cleaning!)
PICK-UP DEBRIS AND STRAIGHTEN PILLOWS ON SOFA
(fell asleep while watching tv last night)
QUICK VACUUM OF MAIN TRAFFIC AREAS
I like seeing things in black and white, and this little list will help me keep a small part of my life that can sometimes overwhelm me in perspective.
What would be on your list and how long does it actually take you to do those task?
"Enjoy the Process"
Of the Mundane task of the day.
BTW: Remember it is easier to "Keep-Up", than to "Catch-Up." Sometimes Okay is good enough!
