power of five...

Do you have a hard time focusing?
I do.
Do you get overwhelmed with all that there is to do?
I do.
Do you play little motivational games?
I do.

I have this little game I's called *5 things*
throw away 5 things
put away 5 things
finish 5 things
comment on 5 blogs
5 more minutes on the elliptical
Just do something...

That's what's I'm playing this week...
Friday is our holiday open house
at Shabby House
...and I am so not ready...
off I go. 1...2...3...4...5

What a delightful game... I need to play that one every day.

Hi! What a terrific idea! This is just what I need to get me going on something, as you say. Sometimes it is just overwhelming all there is to do. Then you throw in the bloghopping which can get addictive! Okay, I'm off to bed now....

Did you know that if you do something 15 time in a row you develope a habit. Your awesome.


Cindy said...

GREAT idea....I can do 5. I think. How 'bout 4? Does 4 work? Or maybe 3....

It would be wonderful if it was that easy... the one I think I have a problem with is the throwing out of five things, somehow ten more seem to take their place.
Your blog is lovely and your shoppe looks heavenly.


Good luck (;

Five (and 15) have always been my favorite numbers, so must try the 5 things for motivation. Thanks. Sally

Five and fourteen (1+4=5) have always been my lucky numbers. So trying this will be easy. I just need to remember to stop at 5...I sometimes get so focused I won't quit until I am totally exhausted.
But that can be a good exercise for me to try. We all need motivation at some time or another!
