Be like the Squirrel

[by the way this clip is for the audio only, there’s no exciting piccys to watch]

Having Brekkie with my mate Nat today, who suggested that I do one thing a day to cross some things off my list of stuff to do that overwhelm me.

Obviously breaking things into pieces is always easier to get tasks done, or as Nat likes to say “You eat an elephant one bite at a time” (metaphorically speaking of course.)

So I promised her I’d give this a go, and pick something each day for the next week to tackle…no matter how banal it may appear to you organised types out there. The idea is to focus on things I have to do that affect my wellbeing, so this week:

Wednesday – new hair colour (cheating a bit because I’d already planned to do this, but …)
Thursday – 1 bag of old clothes that don’t fit to Salvos bin
Friday – walk
Saturday – clear junk off kitchen table and make it look purty – fresh flowers
Sunday – another walk
Monday – tidy out laundry and put stuff in it’s proper place
Tuesday – write letter to long neglected friend

And in the interests of commitment I’ve put it on the blog.
