Can I let you into a little secret?
There have been 2 items hanging around on my to-do list for what seems like ages.
I am not exactly sure how long ages is but I would say a couple of months at the very least.
The reason they have been there so long is because neither of them were a 5 minute job.
Both required planning and I estimated a number of hours if not days of my time to complete.
The thought of that implication had kept them languishing there.
And they would still be there if I hadn’t taken the time to reconnect with my inspirational word of the year.
What was that again?
Ah, yes, that’ll be action then
The reason I chose this word in the first place is because I know the positive effects it has on me when I step up and start taking action. It usually spurs me on to wanting to do more.
So I decided I should step up and get both items done.
And yes, I was right, they weren’t a 5 minute job.
They did many hours of my time.
I could have given up part way through.
Nobody would have been any the wiser. After all, they couldn’t see my list. They just wouldn’t know.
But I would have known.
This time I was determined. I would get the job done. I would do whatever took.
That meant working into the evening. And on the weekend.
