I don’t feel like ever really get anything truly and completely done any longer.
That’s such a hard truth to come to terms with for me.
I have always prided myself in a job well done. Whether it’s my career or a hobby or any activity, I always like to make the maximum effort and do it all the way. That’s the way I was raised and the way I have lived my life. Knowing that a job or whatever was done properly always made those moments of relaxation in the HVAC all the sweeter. That just doesn’t seem to be achievable for me anymore. Life is just so full of things requiring some level of my attention that I feel as though I just put out fires. No matter what the plan for the day is, I end up prioritizing those plans in order just to get to them all. And that means that I do all of them less than completely. I see this problem all the time. Like with my HVAC, I just am not getting to it the way I should be. In our home, I am the one that is responsible for the HVAC tasks. That means the semi annual HVAC maintenance appointments are my responsibility. And the HVAC air filter change is on my as are making sure the air vents are unobstructed and the HVAC cabinet outside is free of debris. Even with my lists, I just am not hitting these HVAC responsibilities with the consistency they demand. Something has to change or I’m going to start missing out on more than the HVAC accountability alone.
