Avoidance is a road block on the path to completion.
One that we all face.
Welcome, to Monday!! It’s almost 4 o’clock and I’ve been busy the majority of the day. Laundry, breakfast, dishes, eliminating paper items. Avoiding my inbox.
Everybody has their own system of “task management.”
One fellow Enterpriser insists on cleaning the kitchen before settling into his office to get down to business. As a Capricorn Sun, with Virgo in my 1st House, I am absolutely unable to “Get to Work!” until my surroundings are clean.
Beyond even this most basic of avoidance methods. The number one reason that drives me to my blog most frequently is the ability to avoid diving into the more serious of projects.
WHY?!? Do we work so hard at keeping ourselves away from that wonderful feeling of accomplishment.
Probably because we don’t think of it like that.
In terms of accomplishment that is.
(Btw. I just went & washed two days worth of dishes before jotting the last two paragraphs).
So, here is an idea- use chores to break up the heavy work. Rather than as an excuse to stay away from it.
My two days of dishes took all of 13 minutes to make clean and I wiped down the counter!
The pause from my work allowed me to think about what was going to come next. It also gave me the opportunity to get up off of my seat.
Another way to tackle your big tasks is to break them down. For example, before selling buttons on e-bay I first dedicated an afternoon to sorting them. I also just took the time to label my calendar book to make flipping through months an easier task.
Good Luck, ya’ll!!
I’m ready to jump into what matters.
