Last night, as I lay in bed awake, anxiety building, I was going over and over in my head the things that I would like to improve about myself. I’d like to have a cleaner house, I’d like to exercise more, I’d like to lose a few pounds, I’d like to spend less and save more.
And as I lay there, overwhelmed by my own thoughts I was reminding of an organizational seminar I took a few years ago. During the course of it, one of the things that stuck with me is that, without sitting down and making lists, the human brain can only concentrate on three things at any given time. Meaning, if you start thinking about a to-do list, you can only easily remember three things later on.
And three things doesn’t sound like that much. Especially if I make those three things about bettering myself and my environment each day.
So three things it is.
Today’s three things:
1. Create a spending tracking system.
2. Clean the mess of clothes and yarn in the bedroom.
3. Exercise for 20 minutes.
