things i like… completing

…the satisfaction to be able to cross a job off a to-do-list that has been there for months.

I once read somewhere that having too many things to do can be highly stressful especially when those things aren’t done to completion.
I know that can happen and if my to-do list gets too long I feel similar. On the other hand I’ve learnt that I can use finishing jobs from my to-do list deliberately because there is an extra kind of pleasure in completing things that were put to one side or on the back burner or wherever you might keep them for ‘later’. Crossing them off the list then is a prticular kind of pleasure.

I’m nearly done with these, a pair just for myself. I will enjoy finishing them tonight.
