Finish Something I Start

This Sparked Me!

I find that being productive around the house these days especially with a 4 month old baby I have had to buckle down and "Finish whatever task I start"!!! And not go back to it hours later! By starting to fold the laundry and finishing it then and there I get way more accomplished throughout the day! If I put my workout clothes one at 5pm I have to be working out by 5:01 pm not get distracted by something else! So that I my biggest secret to success these days!! :)

    I like your secret a lot! You are SO right! I can't count how many time I start something and don't finish it. Thank you for the tip! I will start it today! emoticon

    Completely agree. Whenever I left or don't start right away on something, it just built up bigger and bigger! So, it's better to do straight away instead of waiting :)

    You are so right, it has always worked for me. I am a grandma now, but I remember fighting with my children for them to make their bed right the minute they got up. I proved to them that it took them only two, perhaps three minutes to do so, and their room would look nicer than with an unmade bed.
Keep thinking positive, is very good for you.
