Here's the tip:
Make a List of Three Things
So, if you're a list maker who (like me) makes a list of things to do, then gets totally demotivated by the looming number of unfinished things on the list, make a list of ONLY three items to complete. My list for today is:
Take down all of the Halloween decorations and put them away. Clean the three bathrooms. Take Grey to the park (temps in the 30's make me feel less and less like going outside lately).
*Edited to add - finished everything on the list today. It really helped writing down the bathrooms because with three boys, cleaning toilets is something I try to put off as much as I can.
