What are UFOs?
UFO = UnFinished Objects
It happens when you start something with a great deal of excitement and then run out of interest about halfway through. You may be working on a craft project, writing a report, reading a book or painting a room. It doesn’t matter what it is. You start a task with a picture in your mind of what the outcome should be, but it becomes difficult or boring or you’ll have to make a difficult decision. This is the point when you might put down the project and walk away and it becomes a UFO.
The trick is not to get stubborn about it. If the project isn’t working for you, then you have to let it go. If decisions need to made to move on, DO IT! Clutter is just unmade decisions. Don’t let your projects become clutter! If something becomes too difficult, get help or delegate the task to someone else. The important thing is to find a way to move on. Don’t let a UFO hold you back.
Instead of feeling frustrated, you’ll feel freed!
