You see that piece of paper next to the bin?
What about that pair of shoes you've been meaning to put away?

Keeping these 'Spot Tasks' up to date is a habit I'm still trying to perfect. Usually I'll throw things away instead of letting them lie around, but I can't say that I never procrastinate. (Here's looking at you, Folding-and-Packing-Away-Laundry!)
Erica points out that life can be so much easier if we simply do these fast tasks as/when we notice them. I think that's a great idea and will implement that way of thinking immediately. Let's hope my oomph lasts (Marli's been a very good girl when it comes to our new year's resolutions, but I'm still struggling with keeping to my new & improved morning routine).
