The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – September 2

2021 Daily Writing Challenge Q2

Yesterday I dubbed Pesky Problem Resolution Day. I drove a friend to their doctor’s appointment, and while we waited for their test results, I tracked down and completed several nuisance tasks. I sifted through emails, and after two weeks of back and forth, unproductive phone calls, and promises of a return call, I reached the right person. The pesky financial transaction is no longer a thorn in my side. Yippee. It’s a good thing I am persistent.

Since I was on a roll, I figured the best use of my time was to see just how many irritations I could resolve. The answer is six, in about four hours. I bounced between pulling information, composing emails, texting, a couple of quick phone calls, and chatting with my friend. I even updated my reminder list. How did we ever survive without phones and access to email accounts, note-taking apps, synchronized calendars, and reminder notifications? Batching those noxious follow-ups and working on them in what would otherwise have been unproductive time made the process feel more like a game. The best part is I don’t have to worry and wonder when I might get around to them. I have crossed them from my list, and I can forget about them.

I always remember my number one writing priority. My core habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Yesterday I wrote 253 words.

Did you write yesterday?
