Yesterday, I finished my taxes! Yahoo!! I have learned to appreciate Turbo Tax as a great way for me to make get it done. Of course, it still takes a lot of work and energy and nail biting and stress.
The key is that I finished. That was a good feeling. And, we don’t owe anything. Another “Wow.” And, we are getting money back. A big “Wow-Wow”
I put it off for awhile. I didn’t want to take the time. I even thought we were getting a refund and yet that still didn’t motivate me to move faster. I probably would have waited longer if I didn’t have to get my daughter’s FAFSA done for her college financial aid. I needed to have my adjusted gross income in order to complete it. So…
We all are motivated in different ways. I come up with many excuses for not doing things that I need to do. I want to play golf, I love to read, I hope to go to the movies, I am washing my hair… really anything other than this hard thing I have to do.
There are rewards for doing the hard things that have to be done. It is worth the work. It is worth the effort. There are rewards on the other end. We just have to knuckle down and get at it. So, what are we waiting for?
