Now is the time to stop putting off those dredded tasks, those things you know you should do, but just don’t want to do.
You know… like making that appointment for your annual physical, cleaning out the garage, or organizing your files.
I’m sure a few of you are protesting. I understand. I’m the queen of procrastination. I even have a little sign by my kitchen sink that reads “I’m going to stop putting things off starting tomorrow.” There are a million things I would rather be doing (including doing NOTHING) that sound better than some of things on my to-do list.
I even put off writing this post until now.
The truth of the matter is, we all have projects to tackle, and we create elaborate excuses for why they’re not done. So this year, let’s just do them!
Susan, Michelle, and Jessica and I each came up with several projects we want to get done in 2012, and each month, we’ll share one of those projects with you here on Northern Cheapskate. We’ve chosen projects designed to help us, save money, save time and simplify, and we’re hoping that by getting them done, we’ll inspire you to tackle something on your to-do list each month.
We invite you to join us in our vow to “Get it Done” this year! Start now by making a list of the projects you want to tackle and write out a plan for accomplishing them. Share them in the comments below. (Accountability helps!) Then schedule them on your calendar.
Each month, we’ll share our projects and encourage you to share your accomplishments, too.
Please join us!
