Hey! Are you still procrastinating? I know that I am! I’ve got so many things in my brain, that if I don’t make a conscious effort to stop procrastinating a little, I won’t ever get to these other things. Either that, or I wait so long, I end up doing them rushed or late and don’t enjoy them!

I’ve decided to start a new challenge. I hope to do this every month, but for now, we’re going to give it a test run for the month of October. We are going to have a month of stop procrastinating! If we like it, we’ll keep going all year long! What do you think?
I will list one thing per day that we are to do. Some items may repeat every month, but other items will be new. I am making the lists seasonal. That way we can get ready for holidays, seasons and more, a small, baby step at a time! We may clean a little, we may declutter a little and we may shop some.
Here’s how it will work. I created a new Facebook group where each day’s task will be posted each morning. You will need to join it, so that you can join in on the conversations each day. If you take part in doing that day’s task, please comment on the daily thread. Each week, I’ll let you know what is coming up for the week. This is not meant to cause you any stress. If you can’t get to that day’s task or it just doesn’t apply to you, skip it, OR do something different and share that on the daily thread. This challenge is meant to help you (AND ME)!
Seriously. Fun is what we’re after. That and we want to show ourselves that we CAN stop procrastinating if we put our minds to it. We are starting today, October 1st.
Here are this week’s tasks…..
- Go on a walk
- Visit a pumpkin patch and pick up pumpkins to decorate with
- Decorate for Fall or Halloween
- Bake a loaf of pumpkin bread and give it to a neighbor
- Pay Bills
- Finalize your shopping for anything you’ll need to put Halloween costumes together
- Replace windshield wipers if needed (in preparation for snow/ice). (You can shop for wipers by vehicle here).
I’m sharing the first week starting on a Thursday. In the future, I will likely start sharing the list each Saturday, so you can have it at the beginning of the week.
Also, I’d like for you to focus on 3 goals, you can work on not procrastinating on each and every day. You decide what they will be. Mine are:
Every so often, I’ll ask you to check in and share how you’re going on your 3 goals.
So start, by joining the Facebook page right away! We are going to get so much done!
