A few years ago I asked Greg what his plans were for the day and he responded, “It’s a GSD day.” I had no idea what that was. He explained GSD stands for Get Stuff Done (OK, he didn’t say “stuff”). Since then, GSD days have become a “thing.”
I am a planner. I write out lists of stuff I want or need to do. I put items on my calendar. It keeps me organized and allows me to let go of the stress of remembering everything. GSD days mean fairly long lists.
As we approach summer, we have some big events coming up. We’re already booked on three trips, my daughter is coming out with my grandkids and we’re getting a puppy! I have a stack of lists! I actually thought about making a list of my lists – ACK!
On any given GSD day, I grab my list, make sure I haven’t left anything off it and head out with a route planned. Last week was one of those days. I had a dozen things to do. List in hand, I accomplished everything with ease. As I backed into my garage to unload my purchases, I felt light. My list was full of crossed-off items and I’d dropped off the boxes at the UPS store, picked up the dry cleaning and taken care of a ton of other little errands!
I love lazy days. I am a big fan of sitting out on my patio sipping a beverage with ice tinkling against the glass and reading. But every now and then, you just need to get out there and get stuff done! The sense of accomplishment is a great feeling. The weight of pending chores is lifted off your shoulders and you experience true relaxation.
There’s a whole world out there just waiting to be explored. GSD before you go and have fun!
