  1. Yes, ma’am. (Saluting here…) I will. Really. In fact, just yesterday I’ pulled out my metal wall art, a finger pointing out at me, and the message: “Hey, You! Get Busy!”
    Two similar orders back-to-back? A coincidence? I think not. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. No such thing as coincidences!

      Sometimes it just takes an order to get us moving…

      I posted this one is for myself, and it’s working. I got so much stuff crossed off my list today!

  2. There are two parts to this.
    The first is things you want to do but have been putting off.
    The second is things you don’t want to do but know that you have to do in order to get to the things you want to do.
    Which is hardest?

    1. For me, it’s always hardest to do the things I don’t want to do.

      But then, once I do them, it’s easy to reward myself by doing the things I wanted to do, which now, because I “just-did-that-other-thing,” I can guiltlessly do.

      BUT, getting through that “I don’t want to do this” stuff can be SUCH a drag. I’ve found that I have to find some way to make light or fun of the thing that I don’t want to do. (Play some beautiful music while I’m doing a blah chore, for example).

      1. I have to write a list and break it down into incremental steps with a break here and there. As I cross of the list, I feel that I am progressing.
        When I am doing something that I want to do, I don’t have to make such a complicated list.

What do you think?
