Another way to tackle those dreaded tasks, though, is to time them. Just how long does it take, anyway?
I put off putting my new duvet cover on my duvet. It takes some agility--climbing inside the duvet cover to match up the corners is no feat for the inflexible! So, I timed myself.
That wasn't too bad, I suppose.
Even better, though, was putting away this basket of laundry.
I was thrilled it only took 2 minutes and 47 seconds.
And clearing this chair?
sorry for the blur!
It is great when something takes less time than you think it will. You now have a stick to beat back that dread. But even if the task does take a long time, like my duvet cover, you still have useful information. We'll talk about simplifying tasks later in this series, too.
Are there any tasks you dread doing?
If you choose to time any as you do them, today, feel free to let me know how long they took in the comments.
