Today we tackled the basement. Old memories, holiday decorations, collections of this and that, things saved in case needed to repair other things, and on and on and on. Everything down there had a story, and it was hard to know where to start, what to save, what to store, and what to sell.
It was a daunting task.
When faced with a daunting task, it is almost impossible to take the first step.
When faced with a daunting task, it is almost impossible to do anything but take the first step.
When faced with a daunting task, it is that first step that makes the next step possible. And the next, and the next, and the next.
The basement is where we put things that we want to think about later. When later comes, a step at a time, what was daunting becomes doable, and what is doable becomes done.
