Social Gathering Survey Results – Impatience

Question 1: Is it you who is impatient or is it the pressure that friends/family/those you live with who are making you feel impatient?

Joint 1st place:

  • Me
  • It used to be me but I’ve accepted it’s going to take me longer than I expected to clear my clutter

Question 2: Which ‘cost’ do you think you struggle to accept the most in relation to your Clutter Clearing?

1st place:

The reality of how long it’s going to take – that there isn’t a quicker way to do this (even though I’ve had my clutter challenge longer than it will realistically take to clear it slowly and steadily)

Question 3: How long do you / did you try to deal with your clutter until you got angry / gave up / procrastinated / changed your goal?

Joint 1st place:

  • Minutes – the overwhelm made me impatient
  • Half a day
  • A couple of days

Comment: I would get a good start and then be unable to return for a second session.

Question 4: Given what you’ve learnt about Impatience, what are you going to TRY to manage your impatience between now and Easter?

Joint 1st place:

  • Focus on one goal at a time
  • Accept that clearing my clutter is going to take more time, energy, effort, focus, emotion and discomfort than I thought
  • Record the successes in my Success / Gratitude Journal

Comment: Notice any insults which I may direct toward myself when I feel impatient, and look for ways to speak and act with kindness instead.
