Remember Hi and Lois? For those of you who don’t, it was a popular comic strip centered on the family life of the two title characters. For the days when you are feeling super efficient, do what Hi and Lois did: put a job jar into effect.
Put a list of unpleasant jobs you have been putting off onto individual slips of paper: weed the front flower bed, strip the paint from one drawer on the old dresser, clean the oven. Also include some pleasureable things: finish one chapter in the latest bestseller, take the dog for a walk, catnap for 1/2 hour.
Make the ratio of 3 painful things to 1 pleasureable. Nothng new is added until the initial crop of suggestions is finished. Honor will get you started, and there is always hope for the next pull.
