Tackling Tasks in October

This entry is part 1 of 22 in the series Tackling Tasks

I have a little confession to make, that to anyone who knows me will come as no surprise.  I am not nearly as organized and put-together as I sometimes (I hope) appear to be.  Yes, I am more organized than some, but my efforts at organization are counter-balanced by a good measure of procrastination and lazy!  I have grand ideas and find I rarely see them come to fruition due to lack of motivation and perseverance.

In fact, I could close my eyes, spin around in my house and point to a project that is incomplete or a place where a project should go.  And I could chalk it up to almost any excuse in the book, but I am coming clean: it’s ME!  So, I am actively pursuing a solution.

One of my favorite home blogs is The Nesting Place and she does a series each year in the month of October focused on a particular topic.  Each year she comes up with great ideas and for the last couple she has invited others to join in the fun.  Last year I was expecting a child in the middle of October, so I couldn’t participate.

But this year I have been inspired to give it a go and make it beneficial to my home.  Thus, I am starting on Tuesday a new series called Tacking Tasks (Simple Projects. Steady Progress.).

Tackling Tasks

The goal the series is to talk about (and get done) lingering projects around the house.  We have been in this house for almost 7 years and there are still walls that are completely blank, curtains that still have not been purchased, much less hung, and little honey-do projects all over the place.

So, wish me luck and send a few prayers my way, because it this month I want to feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day.

    Awesome! It definitely seems like those tasks sometimes linger on for far too long, but it feels so good when they are finally done!
