What Needs Done First?

Saturday, April 15th, 2017

What needs done first? I asked myself this question at 4:30 this morning–way too early to be thinking about it but apparently my mind didn’t think so.

Eventually I did go back to sleep but not until I figured out why this question was gnawing at me so early in the morning.

There are usually too many things that need to be done on a daily basis and it’s not always easy to figure out what should be done first.

So the question becomes: What needs done first? What has got to be done first thing; right now; yesterday?

Is there one thing that’s eating at you and deep down you know if you just go and get it done you’ll be relieved?

In my case, I knew there were about twenty things but couldn’t put my finger on which one needed to be done first

until I realized that I couldn’t put my finger on it because I kept tripping over it on the floor!

 

It was a pile of stuff–papers. For at least a couple of months it was always there every single day.

And every single day I kept staring at it thinking yep, got to do something about it, but not now.

Later; always later…

So at 4:30 this morning that pile flashed in front of me and lo and behold, I figured out my what’s on first and today I finally took care of it.

It’s gone.

Thankfully.

Now, I can move on to the second, third, fourth and the other things on that list of stuff that ‘s got to be done.

I’m relieved.

So what do you keep tripping over, running into, ignoring, the thing you know you’ve just got to do when you’ve got the time?

What needs done first for you?

The Moment

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

The moment you realize you’ve had it and you are done

with things the way they are

you’ll know what you need to do to make things better.

You’ll need to risk and perhaps

even take a bold action.

Once you stand up to the thing you

fear and look it in the eye

you will breathe a sigh of relief

because you’ve made it to a pivotal moment

and at that point you will feel strength and

calm and belief that you are on your way.

An Unmade Bed

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

One day a couple of weeks ago I didn’t make my bed. I hated that I left the house with the bed unmade.

It bothered me as I walked out the door and drove away but I had to get to my first customer so it was too late to do it now.

When it was time for my lunch break I came back home starved and ready to eat then remembered I forgot to make the darn bed. I knew I didn’t want to end the day with it still unmade so before lunch I made it and felt much better.

Call me obsessive, well maybe a little but the truth is I feel like life goes better when I get that bed made. It starts my day off right because that one task gets done. It gives me the feeling that I can take on the next one no matter what it is because I took the time to make the bed.

When you reach a point where you’re done, you’ll know it. You can’t take what you’ve had anymore and want to make changes for the better that stick.
