Feels Like I Am Mowing The Lawn

September 11th, 2008 at 10:36 am

As I look at my Sangl Family Home Pay-Off Spectacular, I get the very real feeling that I am mowing my lawn. (Click on the image below to see the actual spectacular.)

I am working along the outside perimeter of the house to ensure that we own at least all of our exterior walls. It makes me feel like I am mowing the lawn. I always start by mowing the outside perimeter and then work toward the center. I am certain that this is a mental game that I play, but here is why I mow my lawn with this technique (and color in the squares on the Sangl Family Home Pay-Off Spectacular).

* I want the longest and hardest part to be done first.
* As I work toward completion, the time to complete each complete pass is shorter.
* This method helps me see that I am making progress with every pass that I make.

Have you ever mowed your lawn for months or years with a small push mower and then had the opportunity to mow it with a riding mower that had a 48" deck? All of the sudden, the push mower seems totally puny and inferior. That is EXACTLY what it has felt like to slow down on our mortgage pay-off for the past six months. It felt like I had to jump off of the riding mower and start push mowing again. I am PUMPED to know that we are again back on the riding mower starting this month!

What techniques are you using to color in your Spectaculars?

    You could animate this to emphasize the lawn mowing effect. Smile
