Tacke it Tuesday - tolerations

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

This week I decided to tackle those irritating little things that I just haven't been getting around to. In the coaching world, we call them tolerations and they typically drain your energy even though doing them wouldn't take very long at all.

So this is what I did this weekend:

  1. I glued my insoles back into my boots - 3 minutes
  2. I wrote an email I've been procrastinating on (not to any of you bloggy friends) - 3 minutes
  3. I quickly sorted out my sock and underwear drawer - 5 minutes
  4. Caught up on my filing (weekly plus the stuff from the water debacle) while listening to a podcast - 10 minutes

Peace of mind = PRICELESS

What did you tackle this week?

BTW, in the June newsletter, I am going to talk about getting a handle on all the paper in your life.

Those little ones always eat at you and feel so good when they are done. Why do we wait so long to get to them...lol.

I've got those tolerations, too! As I was helping Mandalyn's parents move, I was thinking "I could be doing this at MY house!!"

I love doing this. I feel so much better after knocking out four or five nagging little tasks that I've been ignoring. Suddenly my day and my schedule look a lot less cluttered.

Have a great day!
