									Set Reminders to Yourself to do Your Chores and Find More Time As a
Result
It's been said through the ages that all work and no play made Jack a
dull boy. But Jack knew that there was a time for play, and that was
after the work was done. By setting priorities and goals for ourselves
when it comes to our household chores and making a dedicated commitment
to meet those goals, we also benefit from reduced stress levels and
increased free time to pursue those things we like to do, or do nothing
at all should we choose.
Write down all the things that need to be done in order of their
importance. The greater the importance of the task, the higher it goes on
the list. Put your distractions in their place, which is at the very
bottom of the list, after all your chores have been successfully
completed.
Don't look at a big task as a big task. Break it up into smaller more
manageable segments. Commit to completing it a segment at a time. If
needed make an outline before and as you accomplish each part of the
outline, check it off. Pretty soon you'll have a crossed-off outline and
one large project effectively and efficiently completed. This works
especially well to tackle the chores we're dreading the most. We can
easily handle an unpleasant task if we know it's for a short time and in
small doses.
Have all your materials and supplies ready before you begin. Use a daily
schedule and have it with you all the time. If needed, post reminders to
yourself in conspicuous spots, and commit to others verbally that you'll
complete the project. But most importantly, commit to yourself that
you'll complete the project.
Celebrate, pat yourself on the back, smile, and let yourself enjoy the
completion of even the smallest of tasks. Don't minimize your efforts;
recognize even the smallest accomplishment.
