#WednesdayWisdom: Let’s shine a light on that creep.


We all have one. You know what I mean, that task that weighs on you, either with a deadline or without, and no matter what you are doing, it’s staring at you creepily from the corner.

Obviously it’s creepy. It stalks you.

Sometimes I figure I should add it after I’ve taken care of the routine day-to-day. Get the usual things out of the way first.


Today I decided let’s shine a light on that creep.

Do it first.

Before everything else, let’s get rid of that thing that’s going to call my brain and hang up, that’s going to tap its foot impatiently and make threatening gestures. Just get it out of the way so I can go on my merry way and it can leave me alone.

And I’ve got to say.

It’s liberating. No reminding myself to do it, it’s done.

No trying to calculate how long it’s going to take, it’s done.

So that is my wisdom for you today. Whatever it is, do it first.

And have a fantastic Wednesday.
