We all have a tendency to go "house blind" to things we live with day in and day out. We stop noticing stains on the carpet or dated light switch covers. We hardly see the crumpled and threadbare couch cushions. We tolerate the mismatched lamp. If you suspect you've gone "house blind" to these kinds of details, here's a fun exercise for a fresh perspective:
Start by sitting in any room and simply noticing all those tolerations with a fresh eye. Maybe you notice that your colors look faded, or your curtains look dated, or your paintings are crooked. Your list might be short, or long. It doesn't matter. What does matter is what you do next...
Once you have a list, prioritize it. Start with the items that you can change in 15 minutes or less. Then order the remainder of your list by time or cost involved.
Decide if any of those larger projects can be broken into smaller chunks. Group those chunks into one project, but you don't have to do the chunks all at once.
Finally, post the list where you can see it (not buried in your phone where you can forget it exists), and start knocking off items one after another when you can.
