Stop avoiding the chores I "don’t like."
I HATE unloading the dishes. So, I avoid doing it. I stack dishes in the sink, I hand wash other dishes, I even blog about not unloading the dishwater…. all in the pursuit of not actually unloading the dishwasher.
This is bad. And it’s indicative of something deeper.
I put things off that I don’t "want" to do. And then the task gnaws at me. It fills my head. I worry about it. I unnecessarily stress over it. In fact, I spend MORE TIME thinking about unloading the dishwasher than it would actually take to just DO IT.
Whether it is paying the bills, calling your insurance company about a claim, writing a thank-you card…. whatever the chore — just do it.
