This morning when I went in the basement to let the dog out, I heard someone crying. It wasn’t Batman, he was still guarding the water heater. It wasn’t Superman, he was helping Batman. The sound was coming from behind them.
The ping-pong table, Joola, was crying.
Through her tears she said, “Please Mrs. Hodges. Will you please move this cow, and sort through these boxes. Please stop writing all the time, and get rid of this clutter. Please Mrs. Hodges, will you just take an hour a day, and work on the basement. I want to be played on. I miss the sound of children’s laughter. ”
“Oh, yes Joola, I’m so sorry. I had no idea how my procrastination has affected you. Today I will work in the basement for one hour.” I replied.
As I walked back upstairs I realized my ping-pong table, Joola was right. I need to take care of my clutter and not write all of the time. I had been waiting for one day to clean the mess all at once. I will listen to Joola, and work today for one hour in the basement. In a week the basement will have been worked on for six hours. (Sunday’s I rest.)
I don’t like to listen to a ping-pong table cry.
Is there a project you have been delaying, because you wanted to work on it all at once? What project can you start today, for one hour? Thirty minutes? Ten minutes?
Please tell me in the comments, I would love to know what you are working on.
