Filing used to be one of my least favorite tasks. Three things changed that.
- I got my filing system in order so that it’s easy to file things.
- I’ve gotten in the habit of filing as I go, rather than let the “To File” pile get overwhelmingly big.
- When the “To File” tray does get full, I’ve given myself a little something at the bottom to look forward to. A smiley face note. It may seem silly, but it works. I get some positive feedback for emptying the tray- and for keeping it empty!

It’s amazing how much of a difference something as simple as this can make in my life. Notes of encouragement, even stickers can be a great reward at the end of an un-loved task. So important to remember that we NEVER grow out of responding well to positive feedback. Thanks Amanda!!
