I got a lot of feedback on my last post, both here and from FB, all of which I really appreciated. My first inclination is to always go too hard on myself (that way no one else can dole out worse judgement, right?), but I realized that self-flagellation isn’t necessarily the best spark for change. I’m just committed to making that change, and do better going forward, and I feel much better now.
I’m in the middle of a house-sitting stretch, which has been a lot of fun, and a good change of scenery. Who doesn’t want a change of scenery? I’m also taking some time off at the end of the week to get some personal projects done — especially all of those craft projects that are 80% of the way there, and need a good, four-hour stretch of uninterrupted time for some headway. Who knows, I might even get some reading done, as well.
Onwards, to a late Friday 5!
- What everyday task is more difficult for you than it should be?
Putting my clothes away at the end of the business day. I have about a 30% accuracy on this. Most of the time, I leave them looped over the footboard of my bed, where they pile up until Saturday, and I go through a massive clean.
- What everyday task do you usually put off for as long as possible?
Answering my voicemails. I don’t know why, but I have the worst dread in collecting them.
- What everyday task do you perform especially well?
Keeping my living/working areas tidy. I’ve gotten way better at this as the years go on.
- What everyday task has most recently been added to your every day?
Making my lunch, either before work, or at the end of the day. I’m making a concerted effort to control the food I put into my piehole, and the integral part of me doing so means I need to be on top of the lunch situation every day so that I’m not trolling for quick and dirty lunch options.
- What everyday task makes the least sense to you?
You’re asking this of someone who will turn the simplest of tasks into the most process-oriented excercise ever. There are very few tasks I do in a day that don’t make sense.
