Monday’s Getting Rid of Clutter Focus:
Did you know Monday’s focus is a focus for the entire week? It does not have to be done all in one day.
Do you try to get rid of clutter while watching TV? or talking on the phone or while doing something else that is distracting? There is a time and a place to multi-task and getting rid of clutter can be one of those times—or not.
Our focus this week is to take 30 minutes or one hour while you get rid of clutter and focus on only that instead of being distracted.
What made me think of this is me. (I’m so funny) I am finishing my grandmother’s flower garden quilt. I am sewing the edge (by hand as all the rest of the quilt has been sewn by hand) and it is tedious, a bit hard and sometimes boring. I “watch” TV (more like listening to it) while I work on the edge. The other morning (at 5:20 a.m.) I didn’t turn on the TV but instead focused on doing just the edge.
I got twice as much done in less time than when I have the TV on. I keep telling myself, just one hour a day is all I have to work on it to get it done—and just like getting rid of clutter it is getting done, doing it a little at a time. I will soon be able to show you my completed quilt—after 20 years in the making. (I’ll show ‘n share all about it when it is done).
Only once this week focus on getting rid of clutter ONLY without TV or talking on the phone or whatever distracts you (well, music is a good thing if you like to listen and organize). Please let us know how you do as far as getting more done in less time—the bonus is then you can watch your program instead of just listening. Or get rid of more clutter.
