It's amazing...

... how just getting the small things under control makes me feel like I have my entire life back on track. In the last two days I cleared out my e-mail inbox, made payments on my credit cards, and put in my transfer application to switch colleges for this semester. That's it. My room's still a mess, my car still looks like I live in it, and my laundry pile is to the point that I fear I'll need a sherpa and a grappling hook to conquer it. Yet somehow just taking care of the day to day things that kinda slipped through the cracks make me feel like I'm not perpetually ten minutes late and my to-do list doesnt look like something a town criar would unroll in ye olde town square.

So maybe I'm onto something. Maybe if I just take it all one task at a time (e.i. maybe focus on moving the christmas decorations into storage, making a list of what goes to GoodWill, and boxing up things that will come with me when I move, would be less daunting than "clean the garage.")

Though I have to admit that it's a little sad that I find this to be such a noble concept.

    You're completely right... the small things do make a difference. I try to do 15 minutes a day--it's not a lot but it makes me feel better and it really does help so much.

    Good luck to you! Keep at it and you'll reach all of your goals!

    Hey, the small things all add up! The more small things I get done around my house the happer we all are. One thing at a time, one day at a time! Yeah, I think they both work!
