But as I walked around my house tonight, I realized this has to change. I saw so many starts, things that were almost complete, tasks or chores left unfinished. From laundry that needs to be put away, a half compete sewing project on the kitchen table and an almost finished application that needs to be mailed off. Why can't I just get this stuff done? I make lists all the time, I love crossing things off my list when they are done. But the funny thing is that I make a new 'to do' list every day or so because only 1 or 2 things are crossed off (I am a chronic list maker!) and sometimes I even add a completed item to my list just to have something to cross off! (I see a pattern here haha)
So I'm making a change. Starting today, September 1, 2014, I plan on becoming a finisher! I think this will just help me feel less stressed about every day little things around the house and feel more in control. I like my lists but I think I will simplify them. Make one each day but not make it a mile long, have it be more realistic. And then I can have a list of long term goals and projects to do, things that have no time limit and are not urgent. That way I have them written down so I don't forget about them, and can work on one at a time when I have the time!
I am also going to stop making excuses and finally add 'workout' to my every day 'to do' list. I will add it into my day and make it a priority. (And I completed a short weight circuit tonight for day 1!)
I think these are great changes to make in my life. Small changes but they will have a great impact! And I feel writing this down will make me more accountable too :)
