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.
