- fixing miscellaneous broken items
- taking miscellaneous items to be fixed (necklaces, shoes, zippers, etc.)
- sewing on buttons
- returning unwanted items
- getting photos framed
- returning borrowed items to friends
Here are six quick steps that break up the decision-making process into manageable tasks and help you overcome inertia:
- Gather all the items in one place.
- Write a sticky note for each to-do task.
- Group the sticky notes into ‘like’ categories so you have a better sense of what needs to be done.
- Batch similar types of errands on a single day (e.g., returning items to stores and friends).
- Schedule to-do items on your calendar.
- Delegate to-do tasks whenever possible so that your time is freed up to do something else.
Manage your time and make a commitment to getting your to-do items done.
