In our journey towards self-growth, we usually get ourselves overwhelmed by the demands of the “big tasks” that we sometimes neglect the pictures of those tasks that seem too trivial for us to bother about. If these “little stuffs” are left unattended to and therefore pile up with time as a result, it will affect our productivity at all levels.
Imagine returning home every evening feeling bright and suddenly starting to feel down as you begin staring at the massive collection of minor tasks that had accumulated overtime as a result of neglect. It drains your motivation and creates stress within.
- The broken piece of furniture that needs to be fixed or replaced,
- The dusty corners that needs to be cleaned,
- The leaky faucet that needs a new washer,
- The door that squeaks when you close it,
- The fan in your PC that won’t stop disturbing,
- The Disorganized items lying freely around,
- The faulty electronic that needs to be fixed or replaced,
- The borrowed items that you’re yet to return,
- The slow PC that’s due for formatting,
- The shelves that needs to be arranged,
And I can keep going on with that list…
Why Bother Fixing The “Little Stuffs”
Although these little stuffs individually, arenâ€™t important enough to bother with, but collectively they can nag at you, drain your motivation and energy and become distracting whenever you see or think about them.
Every time you hear that squeak or see those scattered items inside your apartment, it drags your mood down a bit.
If this pertains to your case, then you can start taking the right steps to get them out of your way. Make a list of those little stuffs that you seemed to have being neglecting and dedicate some time within the next day or two into fixing them.
If you can create time and put in some efforts into handling all those little stuffs in one big session, you will be surprised at how much your mood and energy level will improve afterwards.
