February! This is it..no more collecting, gathering, storing, piling up..."for future reference"! Today is the day to act, not procrastinate. No excuses.
For forty-seven years, I've been stuffing things into boxes, baskets and bags in all the little nooks and crannies of our Wee Hobbit House. Each one was a "just-in-case-we-need-it" essential for some project to come. Not! I confess I am an "h-o-a-r-d-e-r". Oooooo, that is so hard to type. But there it is.
Here's the plan: To apply the wonderful lessons I've been learning on SP in healthy nutrition and daily fitness to my major problem at the moment...Two "attic" study-bedrooms so cluttered that they are all ready to collapse into the first floor rooms below...well, almost. Our little cape just won't hold another page!
Day One: Write the goals and take the pictures
1. Principle one: Choose to commit to dealing with one bag , basket, and/or box each weekday to sort the paper and books for:
a. Toss b. Give c. Keep (maybe) (Must be competed August 1st)
2. Principle two: Track my progress daily with more than a check mark on Other Goals (It
didn't work for me; I gave up so easily, not even noticing the missing mark).
a. Take before photos:
b. Fill the Toss box at least two times a week: Recycle on Wednesdays and Saturdays
c. Deal with the things in the Give box every weekend.
d. Take a progress photo or two now and then
OK, that's it for planning today. Now, Nellie, get busy.
What do you all do with this struggle of galloping things?
