Removing annoyances

Sometimes when we're so caught up with doing all the "meaningful" and "important" stuff, the smaller and lesser stuff begins to slowly add up. I'm not referring to all the urgent-but-not-so-important stuff, but I'm talking about the stuff that's so little that they're too small to make it even to your to do list, because they're so trivial!

That squeaky door. The flickering bulb. That growing weed. The oily sink. The mossy bathroom. That unreturned gift. The only tire in your car that needs just a tad more air. That lone unwashed cup beside your computer. The dripping faucet. The rattling fan. Old web browser bookmarks that should be purged. Old software that should be updated or uninstalled. That movie you need to return.

The list goes on.

If you take a quick glance around your home and/or office, you can probably see at least ten "lesser stuff" that individually by themselves aren't that important to bother with, but as a collective whole they can start to nag and become an eyesore. Everytime you see that unreturned object, hear that squeaky door, smell that odor – it brings your mood down a little. Make a quick list of all these little things, and dedicate a block of time (it may take less than you think!) and handle them all at a go.

If you have a lot of them, dedicating more time, up to a day to remove all these annoyances. Fix the broken stuff, return/sell/throw what you don't need, wash the used stuff and oil the squeaky stuff, do whatever needs to be done. If you take the time to handle all these lesser stuff in one swoop, you'll be surprised how much your mood and energy level will improve by. =)
