Show and Tell Tuesday....Closing Loops

There's nothing better than having a friend who is a super good listener and to top it off she also gives super good advice.  She always seems to know just what I need to hear. 

She's an encourager, a non-bias participant, a thinker, and a problem solver.

And so when we were talking not long ago, she was telling me she was wanting to 'close loops' in her own life.  Meaning, finish projects or goals that had been hanging over her head, 'undone'.

That got me thinking about tasks or goals in my own life and how could I make little reminders for myself so I could feel accomplished when I finished the task...so I got out paper, pen, and stapler and went back to the basics of grade school with the good ol' fashioned paper chain.

I wrote down my goals on strips of paper, and hung them up (yes, a furnace duct works great for hanging things from...LOL).

Then as I finish the task I attach it to make a chain.  I love it because then I see what I have accomplished.  I need that reminder especially on those days when I feel I've gotten nothing done...I laugh when I've realized 'oh, I made 8 batches of jam, and 4 batches of salsa.  Maybe I'm not so lazy after all'...:)
 Happy Tuesday!...my friend also blogged about her loops today....visit her here 'Retired - Life Unfolding'
