Hi OlderOwl!
For the week of 12/29:
1. Leaky toilet - action: set aside time on Saturday to repair
2. Smelly kitchen sink - action: buy elbow and install
3. Overstuffed files - action: set aside 1 hour on Saturday to start
4. Cluttered clothes closet: action: start by ironing what needs to be ironed.

- you are right, ..unfinished business that I have been living with for who knows how long!

One of the most distracting things in life is too much unfinished business in our minds. That makes it harder for one to focus. Lets make a resolution to cut down the clutter in our minds.

So here is my suggested task for the week of 12/29.
1) Take some time to write down the things that can be called unfinished business that have troubled you the past year: e.g., a disagreement with someone, a broken piece of furniture or leaky faucet that needs fixing, or something that you would most like to do but haven't. Try to write each such item that comes to mind onto an index card or sheet of paper using a single sentence or phrase so that you can later decide whether or not to focus on them in the coming weeks, set them aside for later, or dismiss them. If your using paper or a journal, leave some space for marking them complete and the time completed after each item that you write down (leave more space for listing steps needed to complete the item if desired).
2) After each item write a single sentence or phrase describe the resolution of the item that will enable you to consider the item completed.
3) For those items that you desire, write down the next action or actions that would get you closer to a completion of the item. Use additional index cards or paper if necessary.
4) Keep the set of index cards or lists you created in a safe place for review at the beginning of each week so that you need not worry your mind about each item at a time when you can't address them; and, so that can remember to address each item at an appropriate time.
The one thing that separates the above task from writing a simple to do list is that it causes one to not only list things to do but makes us think of a clear resolution or clear actions towards the resolution so that decisive action can be taken.
It is usually not the lack of time that causes one to fail at achieving a goal, but the stress of not having a clear set of actions needed to reach each goal and the ability to prioritize our actions rather than mere goals.

Nice thread, thank you!
Liked the article, too.

The coming week I will be glad if I can just stick to the routine I built up, that means clean the kitchen and the bathroom and vacuum the living room, and do one of my 'extra tasks' on friday.

Keep it simple.
