Do It Now!

I’m finding that a good corollary to Daily Inspection is Do It Now (as Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project, puts it).

Instead of speculating about when I’ll have time to squeeze in a small job (wiping a smudge off a window, eliminating cobwebs spotted between the balcony railings, sweeping the stairs leading to the office) I can usually get it off my list and my mind by attacking the task right away.

The more of those instant jobs I get accomplished, the easier it is to get the house company ready and the less uptight I feel if friends suddenly show up.

    That’s a good idea. I always see simple things that should be done and because they’re simple I figure I can get to it TOMORROW. Well as you can guess tomorrow never comes.
    I’m going to try TODAY from now on. Something my mom had always recommended as well.
    Thanks for the suggestion and reminder.
