Do you often feel as if you need to stick with things you committed to because you don't want to bother someone else or because you feel others won't do the task the way you would?
If you want to simplify your life, you want to look at your to-do list with a fresh perspective. Is this something you want to do? Could someone else do this? If this wasn't done, would it really matter?
Although you may think, "I have to do all of this," when you give yourself the options of Do, Delegate, or Ditch, you can recast your "must-do" tasks.
So, today, do something that will help to simplify your life. It may be stepping back from an obligation. It could be decluttering a ‘hot spot’ where things seem to accumulate.
Maybe you’ll ask your spouse or partner to wash the dinner dishes or put the kids in charge of putting away their laundry. Okay, most of these actions won’t instantly resolve the situation. However, with consistent decision-making, your life will simplify.
