What projects have you put off because of time or money? Are they secretly bugging you. You can only be in denial for so long. Are you always exhausted and that’s why you haven’t gotten to it. Sometimes, when we take small steps on small projects it starts to get big results. It can be mowing the lawn, cutting back plants that have gotten out of control.

The end goal is to pay attention to what makes you feel lighter or happy. It starts to build the momentum. The feelings of overwhelm, can drain anyone. Once you start to take back some control where ever you can. You will have more energy to get small goals done. So if you have a lot of things that have been bugging you and want to get to many goals. Take a look at which one’s will lead to the end result. It’s sort of like unkinking a chain. So decide if you want to knock out the small goals first to help build your stamina.

If some of those tasks aren’t your cup of tea. If it can be hired out, that might be the best option. You get the feeling of accomplishment without having to exert the energy. If you thrive on DIY stuff more power to you. Don’t have any more DIY projects. See if you can barter with people, can you get so many services for your work?

Things That Drive Us Nuts!

I once lived with someone that would wash out pop cans and then stack them in a pyramid.

It was amazing how much time this individual took to make the pyramid on the counter, without once thinking about putting them in the recycle bin.

It really is the little things that will drive you nuts!

Each person has a breaking point on what will send them over the edge.

One of my things is that I hate DIY Projects. I hate people who do this on house when they clearly don’t know what they are doing.

My own house is the victim of such a person. I am currently fixing or replacing the things  that were done wrong.

I’m constantly fighting a battle with the appliance left behind by the previous owner.

I know enough to not even think of trying to fix these things myself.

What can go wrong that isn’t in a text-book will. That is the law of this house, especially when they were a bargain hunter or cheap.

Recent example, I have a stove and had to replace a part that should have been a piece of cake.

Wrong, it took an hour and a half to replace a part in the oven that should have taken 15 mins.

The replacement part almost works perfectly except it still will not light the oven.

Since I know I have no patience, I don’t pick projects that are extremely frustrating to me.
