Tackling
a big
project

A few things I have learned in recent years about myself are how I best tackle projects that require extra time and effort. For me, the phrase, "strike while the iron is hot" is certainly true.

Tasks, such as trimming shrubs and cleaning gutters around our house, are not ones I really dislike, but they do take time and physical effort. This past Saturday, I rose early and attacked the tasks before having time to think much about it. It did get awfully hot, so I had to finish the cleanup on other days.

I am usually worn out after such a task, but it is a good tired and not nearly as tiring as it feels when undone tasks are weighing on my shoulders. Muscle and joint soreness usually result a day or two later, but again, these are good aches, well deserved and a reminder of a task completed.

I get the same satisfaction from cleaning a vehicle, although I admit that getting started with this or any other special project is the hardest part. It's usually too hot or cold, there are too many mosquitoes or my energy is just not there. continued...
