It’s been one of those weeks. We all have them. Each day it seems the task list doesn’t end and the dishes continue to pile up in the sink.
I went to sleep last night and dreamt I walked down to the kitchen and all of the dishes were done. “Yes!” I thought, as it meant I wouldn’t have to do them this morning before work. But something strange happened when I walked into the kitchen this morning — the dishes were still piled up in the sink. Oof.
After I took the dog outside, I knew what I had to do. One by one, I put the dishes in the dishwasher and hand washed the pans. Before I knew it, all of the dishes were clean, just like I had experienced in my dream.
It got me thinking about the way so many people live their lives. The goals and ambitions they have stack up day-to-day and they’re hoping one day they’ll wake up and find all of their dreams have come true.
But it doesn’t work that way. It takes work to achieve the things we want in life—one dish at a time, it seems. You can make your dreams come true, as long as you’re not afraid to put in a little work.
What’s the one dish (or goal) you need to get started on?
