Weekly to dos: five

Each week I’ll post a portion of my to do list for the coming week. I put things on my list that I would procrastinate on if not for the accountability of posting them here. The following Monday I’ll update you, hopefully with pictures, and share my list for the next week.

January 18 already; wow! I hope that 2015 is treating you well so far; as for me I can’t complain. Because it’s a new year, I have a strong sense of expectation and I believe that any dreams of mine that require me to apply myself to will come true. However, my inner critic is already telling me that this is just another year that will end in disappointment like past years—I intend to prove “her” wrong.

This week's to dos

Thanks to my colleague Emily, I found out about Apartment Therapy’s annual January Cure, where each day, participants are given a challenge related to making your home look and feel better. The goal is that by the end of the month you’ll be living in a home that’s less cluttered, cleaner, and more welcoming and relaxing. If your home could use some love, check out the challenge!

    • Hi Ibifiri! I recommend the to do list for those items you tend to procrastinate on. Accountability can be good motivation.

    • Hi Uzezi! It has been a while—thank you for stopping by…I hope you’ve been well.

      All the best with your to do list—I find public accountability motivates me when it comes to those things I tend to procrastinate on doing.

  1. I really like your to do list. Looks like you have been achieving most of it. I should join the 30mins walk to day. It quite nice over here.

    Now I want to read the Steve Harvey book too. It must be very good that you are re-listening :)

    • Thank you for your comment, Florence. Did you manage to squeeze a walk in? Internally I whine about going out but once I come back I’m glad that I went.

      I did enjoy the book: there are some great truths in it and it’s not too long.
