I had enough of my broken necklace on my desk. So finally I got out the hot glue gun, plugged it in and fixed my clasp. Took less than 10 minutes.
Now I was on a roll, what else needed hot gluing? I hot glued the bird back on the fence of the decoration that is on my porch.
Then there was the piece of corkboard loose on my bulletin board and a rhinestone that had fallen out. I asked my daughter if she had anything she needed fixing. Round the house I went.
After 30 minutes, I had a multitude of items fixed that had been broken for months. And I had so much energy afterwards.
"What else?" has become a habit. If I have a hot glue gun out, I’ll ask what else needs fixing. If the vacuum is out, I’ll ask what else needs vacuuming. If I have the window spray, what else might need spraying. If I am trekking down into the basement, what else can go?
I save time doing it this way and I keep up with upkeep better.
This week, try asking, "What else?"
