Once Again Working on Organizing Myself

Good Day, God!

What a double joy to have my beloved husband Kit home, after his eleven days on the Mainland. First is just the pleasure of his company. Second is his loving help in so many ways. I am so blessed, God! Help at home makes the difference between enjoying the chores and being beset by them.

Today, further exploring the idea of creating my own Life Games I looked for Tasks that could be done in 3-5 minutes — that were routine — and that I could tell when they were done. I found quite a few. 1) Water my house plants 2) upload photos 3) make an appointment 4) write one email 5) make the bed 6) brush my teeth 7) do floor exercises 8) do weights 9) take vitamins 9) tidy my desk 10) take a shower.

So many micro tasks, God! And if I went on to create a list of 10-minute tasks and then 20-minute tasks — most of my life would fall within them. Life is a mosaic. But, having made a mosaic years ago, I know that one needs a framework to set the pieces in. Judith Kolberg in her book ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life talks about Strategies, Structure and Support. Strategies and Structure seem doable. Ah, but Support is a little trickier.

Judith Kolberg observes that people with ADD especially don’t like to ask for help. Hmm. I thought it was just me — perhaps being a matter of pride. But, now I am thinking it might be that people who are sequentially impaired might just have a hard time scheduling help. Sigh. I guess, God, that identifying what is HARD should tell me where to put my effort.

But, I will need to ask for Your Help, God, in order to ask for help from others.
