In Pursuit of an Organized Life

Seizing the Moment

on September 23, 2013

This weekend we went the apple orchard.  We picked fruit and enjoyed the playground.  A family outing for a beautiful fall day.  It wasn’t planned, but it was something we talked about and now was as good as any.  We could have easily said—-oh next weekend we’ll do it or we will do it next year.  We may have had 3 more days we could do that or this might have been it.

There is value in planning, but there is also value in doing what makes sense in the moment.  I’m finding that with cleaning too.   Just seizing small moments to quickly sweep or tidy.  Yesterday, I cleaned the toilets while I was waiting for my family to get ready to go.  It made waiting less frustrating and also got that small task out-of-the-way.  By just tackling little moments, I’m finding that more things get done at least when times are busy.
