If you’re like me, you probably have a to-do list that never seems to end. Sometimes, just thinking about something on my to-do list takes more time than actually doing it! Here’s my fun example of the day. When I moved into my apartment a year ago, the bathroom faucet was missing the pop-up (yup, that’s what it’s called – image above), that blocks things from falling into the sink. Every time something falls from the cabinet above the sink I have a mini heart attack because I’m afraid it’s going to go down the drain. It’s ridiculous. It’s been a year and every morning I think about how much better things would be if there was a proper drain on the faucet.
Fast forward to today and I bought the darn pop-up. It took a little effort, a few phone calls, a visit to a few stores, but it’s beautiful! And it cost my $3. $3 and an hour of my time, as opposed to minutes of each day for 365 days! It’s such a simple thing, but I kept putting it off.
So my question to you is what are you putting off? It might be making that dreaded doctors appointment, or cleaning out your closet, or having a hard conversation with someone. It could be anything. What’s one thing you could do today that would free up some of your mental space, bring you some peace of mind and make your life that much better?
