My task game

June 4th, 2006 at 02:09 pm

Weekends --

I want to relax -- I have to get things done. Having tasks having over my head almost ruins my weekends.

My most satisfying days, however, are the ones in which I get something done, but also enjoy myself doing something fun.

I've developed a sort of game I play. I make a list of everything I have to do -- no particular order. Then I roll a die (I use one from an old Dungeons & Dragons game, because it has a lot of numbers). I do whatever task is that number on the list. The element of surprise helps me somehow.

When I get that task done, I do something fun -- like what I'm doing now! Then I roll the die again and get another task done.

I never get through the whole list, but I do get things done, and still have some fun. Of course the fun is always something free, like reading or doing a puzzle or watching a free movie.

And of course, when I busy myself like this all day, I don't get out to spend money!!!

    That is a really neat idea! DH and I have tossed around the idea of assigning numbers to a chore, but in a slightly different way. He seems to think he can't comprehend "Do the dishes" but would be able to comprehend "Do task #1002". We haven't switched to this system, but I'm willing to try anything that he will understand. I do really like your system and that might work with him as well!
