DONE! (link)

06 Apr

I don’t do links very often, but I liked this one a lot. It spoke to me.

Smaller chunks. Smaller chunks. Smaller chunks.

    I love that stuff. When my son was small, he was afflicted with the ADD, and I learned a great deal about timed tasks when I was doing his behavior modification stuff with timers. It became like a game with me as with him. I love to set a timer, or work during commercials. It does give me a greater sense of accomplishment. Just the other day, I did it for our banking. I was like, Step One:write all the stuff done. Step Two: enter all the bills to pay online. Step Three: write the checks. Step Four: put labels and stamps on all the envelopes. Step Five: Do the math. LOL — It takes almost an hour, but it feels faster when I achieve greatness along the way!

      I am very big on lists, and I love being able to either check things off or cross them off the list when they’re done. I’m NOT as good at breaking things down into small chunks. And I’m definitely not good at giving myself a time-limit.
      I was interested to read about the idea of saying “DONE!” … I am trying to find more things to change my physiology for the better, and this one seems like a good one for me. I suspect it’s similar to ticking things off on a list, but I can always add shouting “DONE!” to that. The dogs might think I’m nuts, but that’s nothing new! LOL

        Yeah, it’s more personal, I suppose. But sometimes, when you want to get a lot done, lists are the only way. Sometimes just dedicating X minutes to a task is the only way to say, “I’ve done enough of that today!” (Like painting trim. Who wants to dedicate entire days to that back hallway?!? lol)
        I think you’ll like it and do it more 🙂

        I get sucked into projects and like to get them finished. Sometimes it’s really detrimental to my physical health because I can really hurt myself by pushing to finish a project. I’m better about that now–knowing that I HAVE to stop or I’ll suffer for it–but I don’t know that I could put a time limit on it ahead of time.

        OH I KNOW! I do the same thing! Caution — Rome wasn’t built in a day, ahaha!
