I stumbled (through one of you) upon the 31 Days Challenge over at The Nester.
The Beautiful, Lovely, Awe-Inspiring Nester.
The basic idea is this: Write about one thing, any one thing . . . for every day in October.
Every . . . single . . . day.
My reaction was a bunch of “buts.”
But . . . I don’t post on weekends! (And it started on a weekend!)
But . . . I’m afraid of commitment!
But . . . what if it inhibits my creativity!
See all of those exclamation points and italics? Mmm-hmmmm.
But . . . then I started thinking. We’re heading into Holiday Season, and I’m feeling rather overwhelmed with my schedule changes. It might be good to have some accountability and renewed focus.
Y’know, rather than just 31 days of excuses.
So, with the goal being “focus” I decided to commit to write for 31 days about details. I’ll likely double post on days when something else is burning in my soul, but I’m committed to noticing and acting upon details in October. Every single day in October.
I’m not sure where this will go, but I’m starting with simple details. Like this:
A wadded up rug that I see every single time I . . . . you know . . . but somehow never fix. Why in the world this seems like a “job” I don’t know. It’s not a job, it’s a detail.
Two seconds later (plus photo-taking-time), and this
task detail is finished.
Oh, and since you asked to be reminded . . . have you voted for A Slob Comes Clean today?
