I decided to put that "just do an unpleasant task for 5 minutes by timer and quit when it goes off. Next day, do that again till it's finished". Two days ago I put it into action. No timer though, but I did quit after a few minutes. Thing is, I was indeed finished within about 8 minutes. Very nice and I rested on my laurels newly earned.
Yesterday, I took all the frozen foods out of the freezer, threw away very little I was surprised to see, and re-organized the freezer which it needed terribly. NOW I can see what I have. Today, I was in Hobby Lobby and found two little storage things for my desk top in the kitchen. I had to go through everything piled up there and file, throw away or whatever. That whole task was time consuming. No five minutes there. A good half hour or better--- but it got done.
Glutton for punishment I am, because then I came in with a bag and emptied the shredder. It's in a tight place and no matter how careful I am, there is a mess of shreds on the carpet after lifting the cutter. Dumped out the stuff, cleaned up the mess, shredded what was waiting and voila...another odious task done.
The junk drawer is in desperate need as is the desk drawer. OH! Woe is me. Shall I do it today? Nope. Suffered enough.
Did you know that NO one knows how to drive? I have been in a car as passenger quite a few times being hauled in to work as I could not get down off my hill or out of my upward sloping driveway with snow/ice etc. A Z28 doesn't/didn't help. (now I have a Toyota Corolla just to be clear). So, on the way to or from work or just anywhere in general I would hear from various people "These idiots just don't know how to drive"!!! I inferred that the driver in each case was the only individual who DID know how to drive. I knew I didn't know how to drive obviously as I was asking for a ride, right? Anyhoo, each driver has declared that the rest of the folks out there are idiots and simply don't know how to drive. They made awful mistakes and caused the driver trouble. Like the ones who creep up a hill that you are trying to race up and git'er done. There they are. Idiots. In your way. Idiots, and they don't know how to drive.
And so on. I got to thinking that there were only perhaps half a dozen folks here in a town full of idiots that "know how to drive". I never said that, or I would have been booted out of the car and told to walk, don'tcha know?
