I spent the other day swatting flies. At least, in a manner of speaking. You know those pesky tasks that keep hanging around your to-do list? The ones that aren’t big enough to seem important, but they keep buzzing around, getting in your face and annoying you?
Well, I decided it was time to get out the fly swatter and take care of them. The thing about these little tasks is that most of them do not take more than 10 or 20 minutes to dispatch. But when they never rise to the level of being a top priority, they don’t get done. They do not like being ignored, though, so they keep reminding you that they are there. Until you get rid of them once and for all.
Why not set aside some time in the next few days to swat your flies and get rid of those annoying little items on your to-do list? It will feel good to get a bunch of stuff off the list, and it is much quieter when they stop buzzing around.
