Done is Better than Perfect

Sheri Here,

You may have a vision, a life bucket list, but where are you on actually getting something done?  Even a small step?

What Is Your Plan? (header)
We’ve talked about taking the next indicated step (See “The Next Indicated Step”), but it may have yielded very poor results – that’s ok, you took a step.

Or it may have gotten you further than you’ve ever gone before – woohoo!

It might be time to come up with a full blown plan to do something.

Planning doesn’t need to be hard or boring – it could start with the number 1 item that you are dreaming about.

Now it is time to put together a list of what’s wanted and needed.

Create An Outline

You could sit down with a piece of paper and create an outline – like this one for moving to a new house (not yet bought and old house not yet sold)

  • Old house
    • Getting Ready to Sell
      • Declutter – sell, give away, trash
      • Paint
      • Clean Floors
      • Fix broken things – e.g. leak in the sink
      • Clean the whole house
      • Start packing infrequently used items to open up the space to look uncluttered and spacious.
    • List House
      • Contact desired realtor
      • Set value of old house
      • List house
    • Sell House
    • Move
      • Finish packing
      • Hire movers
      • Move
    • New House
      • Get financial information ready for mortgage broker
        • Clean up credit if necessary
      • Talk to mortgage broker to see how much of a loan you can afford
      • Begin search with established budget in mind
        • Contact your realtor for possible listings
        • Peruse Zillow and other internet services
      • Decide what you can afford and what is available at that price to see if it interesting enough to finish process
      • Buy house (coordinate with sale of old house)
      • Move in

Steps In The Process

You can see there are a number of steps that will take time and a number of places in the plan that you may decide the timing or supply of available houses is poor.

Possibly the amount you can afford is less than the house you want. You can then discontinue the process or put it on hold.

This is a simplistic example of a complicated process, but hopefully you get the idea.  Who knows, you may experience no barriers and you have moved into a new house!

Just brainstorm the steps for the goal that you want to work on and take them in the appropriate order.

Research is Another Form of “Squirrel”

Sheri Here,

How do you make searching for things fun and easy?

When you are searching…

Have you ever “lost” your phone in your house and then spent hours looking for it?

Maybe you got distracted (squirrel) by many things: deciding now was a good time to declutter the junk drawer, clean out your sock drawer, or realized the living room needed dusting?

And you still didn’t find it – drat.  You tried to call your phone but realized it was on mute and the “Find Your Phone” feature wasn’t turned on.  Frustrated!

So you start over again looking.  Now the sock drawer is tidy and the junk drawer is decluttered and the living room dusted! Argh, where is it?

Then you finally find it on top of the washing machine – how’d it get there?

When you are researching…

We are so blessed today because we have numerous search engines: Google, Bing, YouTube, to name a few.  Collectively, I call them Google. You can find practically anything and with AI, like ChatGPT, you can ask questions and get answers easily.

Of course, if you have to document your sources, relying solely on ChatGPT might be a challenge unless you ask for a source – duh!

You are limited by your imagination.  I remember when our information sources were the encyclopedia, the library and the periodical directory.  You also had to have a really good subject definition to easily find information.

Ah, those were not the good ol’ days!

But sometimes my Google searches are like looking for my phone – I get distracted (squirrel) and go down the rabbit hole until I remember what I was doing.

There is so much good stuff out there in the cyberverse to know about.  All those fun facts that I might not need to know about, but get really distracted by.  Some of my searches take twice as long as they need to.

It’s closely related to Shiny Object syndrome or the game of Squirrel.  If you don’t know what those are, hit reply and I’ll fill you in.

How do you handle distractions?

How do you search for things?

How do you make it easy to find something in a short period of time, and not get sidetracked?

Hit reply and fill me in.  Inquiring minds need to know!

Come cheer me on!

‘til the next time.
