Bonus Tip of the Day -- Hold Hands

Today's tip is to find a partner, and hold hands.  Use the buddy system to accomplish those tasks you dread. 

Need to exercise more?  Find a partner!
Need to plan next year's schoolwork?  Find a friend, set a date, plan together!
Need to declutter?  Find a friend, hold hands, and dive in!
Need to read your Bible daily?  Use the buddy sytem!
Need to grade schoolwork?  Find a friend to hold you accountable!
Need to take more field trips?  Find a partner to join you!
Need to conquer the laundry monster?  Find a friend to cheer you on!

Sometimes our partner can physically come and work along with us.  Sometimes our buddy has to hold our hand over the phone or internet to walk us through our task, and check up on us.  Sometimes we just need a friend who can ask us how we're doing, and hold us accountable.  Sometimes we need to set a date to meet with someone else, or it won't get done.

I admit that I tend to be independent.  I try to do too many things on my own, but there are times I need to use the buddy system, too.  I am learning to use the buddy system.

If there's an area in which you struggle, a dreaded project you are procrastinating on, I challenge you to find a partner, and use the buddy system.

  1. I love the photo on your blog banner. I recently posted a picture of three of my children's sandaled feet!

    So cute. I especially love the tiny little baby feet!

  2. Very interesting seeing as that is how Joc and I were last week... We were not gettin along and so Mom made us do EVERYTHING together.

    It worked. We are now being nice to each other. LOL!!
