Start working on chores right away

I am very organized 97% of my life, but the one area where I sometimes feel as though I need more organization is on deciding which chores to tackle first. As you may have read on my blog before, I am a big proponent of dedicating one day to cleaning up and of getting rid of the Box of Miscellaneous Stuff (BMS). I’m also pretty good at jumping ahead with the tasks I’ve already broken down into manageable bits, even while I travel (remember that post of mine on the Minimum Travel Work Unit, the MTWU?). But the one thing I always struggled with was – which chore to do first? I end up multitasking them all.

So, finally (and since I’m a very big proponent of reading horoscopes, even if just for fun) I decided to read my horoscope for today (as I am doing laundry, reading Twitter, downloading articles on workaholism and cleaning my apartment) and guess what it says?

Virgo: You have an unusual list of chores to do today and you might actually be looking forward to getting started on them. You don’t know exactly how it’s going to go until you begin, but don’t waste too much time figuring out all the details. Your best shot now will be to let go of your tendency to want more control; simply make it up as you go along. You have all the skills necessary for success.

My list is indeed unusual in the sense that I might need to do some additional Christmas shopping and buy some decorations for home. But what I particularly enjoyed was the advice – simply make it up as you go along. So, I’ve decided to advice what seems to be working for me now – start working on chores right away. Don’t delay thinking “should I do (a) or (b) first?” … just get going with them!

Have a wonderful day!
