It's the Little Things...

I have found that -- in order to avoid feeling overwhelmed -- I need to break down my daily tasks into smaller steps when I put them on my "To Do" list.

For example:
  • I do not write "dishes"
  • I write "empty dishwasher" and "load dishwasher"
This way, I am able to cross things off more often & feel a sense of accomplishment. See? If I just write "dishes" and get interrupted, I feel like I haven't gotten anything done.

I think today I'm going to break it down even further:
  • put away spoons
  • put away forks
  • put away knives
  • . . . 
I feel a productive day coming on!
