Throughout this journey of “Somedays”, I’ve tried to use the purposefulness of the process to help me stay productive in other areas. I’ve tried to accomplish mini-“Somedays” along the way. I’ve written about some of them, but others, like organizing the kitchen cupboards, drawers, and pantry were just little (or sometimes big) accomplishments that I feel good about. Yesterday, I completed two mini-“Somedays”: two little plaques I’ve been wanting to make for our home.
I’ve had the intention of putting these together for months; however, putting aside the time to do them just never seemed a priority. Once I had them done and mounted on the walls, I wondered why it had taken me so long to get them done. It took less than two hours to make them and that included searching for the antique white frame I knew I had somewhere. Just two hours! How many hours do I squander on inane activities? Why do I not harness those hours and make them productive? The thought was eye opening.
And now, with eyes open, I’m going to look around to see what other mini-“Somedays” are waiting to be done. I had such a sense of accomplishment yesterday! It was a level beyond the effort I put in, but that’s okay. I like the feeling and I’m willing to accept it even for small projects. Bring on the To-Do list!

Beautiful! I left my schedule empty last week. No work and no motivation to do anything. It was a pretty blah week mood wise. Back at it today, and I’m ready for some well earned feelings of accomplishment.
Debbie you are so right. 2 hours to make those memorable plaques that will brighten your life daily. It always surprises me how easily and quickly tasks that I have been putting off for extended periods are completed once I actually start them. I think it is emotional inertia. It takes extra energy to move from a position of rest.

LOVE these … LOVE THE FRAMES! I’m right there with you on diving in and getting things done — I’m also all about double checking my to do list and deleting those things that won’t deliver the joy!

Congratulations!! I’m always very proud of you and any of your accomplishments. Mgt
Accomplishment is a wonderful thing – and procrastination is, I think, the basic human condition. Getting it done is striking a blow against it!
