I have a screen door that leads to the garage. It’s had a tear in it since around Christmas. It was one of those jobs that I wanted to get to, but there were always other priorities that seemed to pushed it away.
I finally tackled it this weekend, and the effect on my mental health has caused me to re-evaluate how I prioritize tasks.
I looked at that screen every day, and it was a reminder on how things are always breaking down. As you let tasks like that linger, you will come to believe “everything is breaking down”. So in the future, if the task affects how I will perceive things, I will add a “factor X” to its priority.
I’d love to hear your take on that subject.
