I haven’t posted in a few days. That’s ok. I simple acknowledge it and move on, writing this post. No need to chide myself, or try to make myself feel bad. Life happens, and the fault is not with me, but with my systems. Today’s note is remind myself to become a finisher. I sit here in a partially finished home office. The moulding needs to be filled in, caulked, the outlets replaced and new wall plates put on, remove the paint tape and touch up. After words, it’s bringing my bookshelf and another computer desk in. It doesn’t sound like much, but it’s easy to let this slip by as the days pass. For a one time activity, it’s best to schedule this and then work it to completion. It’s not a habit, it’s a project. Projects have a definite start, end, and goal, and to avoid relying on motivation, it’s best to schedule, block the time and then work it to completion. Habits, on the other hand, are recurring, and it’s best to start small. For a project, the goal is to “Get it over with” and enjoy the results. For a habit, the goal is the habit itself. Finish projects, keep habits.
