When planning a fruitful garden you must undertake what the task at hand requires. Timing is a major element people tend to forget. One can easily get sidetracked, making the task longer than necessary to complete or causing a lazy, laid back thought pattern which sets original goals in a holding pattern never to be revisited. The final results suffer terribly. So whatever the tasks at hand: plan, prioritize, picture it and complete it. Your plan of action will have bountiful rewards.
Choose realistic goals so that you are not disappointed with the results once you realize you have gotten in over your head. Try not to pigeon-hole yourself to one primary idea as this may create undue limitations or pressures. Keep to your progressive steps to finishing what you start. Leave the procrastination out of it by writing down what you want to have accomplished in a timely fashion, i.e., six months to clean out the basement and garage. Incorporating ideas such as, building bins for donations and residual storage, scheduling a yard sale or organizing a collective fundraiser with neighbors, is another thought. Friends who are also doing some winter cleaning and are looking for a way to pay it forward is yet another way to go. Whatever you decide, keep it simple, keep it fresh, be open to other ideas and above all make it happen!
So how will you make your garden grow?
