Today’s Perfect Moment is a victory over procrastination. Without adding it to the list of New Year’s resolutions, I have quietly been trying to root it out of my life. Far too often I have let things pile up and just not get done. I’ve shrugged my shoulders, but actually felt like it should have been accomplished.
Today, I got both my driver’s license and health card renewed. I also got the license sticker for the car and actually cleaned and dried the plate and put the sticker on. That could have languished in the glove compartment for weeks or months if I hadn’t done it today. I remember once that I left the thing in the car and it got so cold that it shattered. I learned a hard lesson that day, and I don’t want to repeat it.
Lately, I’ve just thought I should get things done when I think about them and not wait until later. This means putting dishes away soon after they are washed. This means making my lunch for the next day the moment I think about it. This also means putting stuff away and organizing stuff instead of thinking I will do it later.
Overall, I feel quite positive about this course of action. Unfortunately, I can’t make everyone in my life do the same things.
