Coming into the new year I keep reminding myself that this day counts just as much as tomorrow. So now instead of saying I need to get this done tomorrow or this week or by then, I say why not now? I can knock this out real quick. Let me get this done today so tomorrow is free for the next thing.
It’s amazing how good I feel when I get a chore done or work on a project as soon as it pops in my mind. Productivity is a good feeling. The problem is when many things pop in my mind at once. I start a million little projects and never complete a chore in one go.
So I remind myself. Today matters. Not just with what I need to get done, but with my sanity as well. What is going to make me smile today? I’ll get that one done for sure.
