Make frequent mental notes about those small tasks that need completing so that you’ll be more likely to get them done!
I am. The Garage Guru is not mindfully messy in your garage, just her own.
Here’s an example. You walk into the garage with a box from your kitchen for thrift – you can’t put it on the shelf because the shelf already has thrift items from when you cleaned out your laundry area and that stuff only made it to the garage not thrift.
When I’m being mindfully messy I KNOW the kitchen thrift box in my hand should not go on the floor in front of the old skis in front of the shelf already full of thrift items but I do it anyways.
If I were being mindful, the box in my hands from the kitchen would go straight into the car which, when I am mindfully driving by the thrift store, I would stop and drop it off. Get my drift?
The key is to make a resolution to be more mindful of everything you do – how much food you eat, which pocket you put your cell phone in and where you put that box in the garage.
Making a mental note in these situations ensures that completing small tasks will stay at the front of your mind, ultimately getting them done quicker, instead of the back where they will be forgotten.
