Today, November 3 is National Sandwich Day. From what I understand sandwiches were invented in the 18th century by the Earl of Sandwich. To keep his bare hands from getting greasy he used bread as a buffer when eating big slabs of meat.
Besides now thinking about taking a walk down to the farmers market for a grilled Hot Hood Sandwich (that’s peanut butter, strawberry jam, and jalapeno peppers) I’m thinking about how to use a sandwich method to get through my weekend to-do list while still having a fun weekend.
One of the characteristics of “happy” people is their ability to get thing done, to set goals and achieve them.
Today let’s use the Sandwich Method to get through the fun and not so fun tasks on our to-do list. We will buffer the not so fun tasks with the more fun tasks.
For example, this morning I took the dogs for a nice walk (fun task), gave them baths (not so fun task), and I’m now enjoying my own bubble bath as I blog (double fun tasks).
If I continue to sandwich my way through the weekend I should have many things checked off my weekend to-do list by Monday morning without feeling guilty for enjoying my weekend as well.
Let’s give it a try. What will you sandwich today?
