31 Days of Anti-Procrastination

1 Oct

Over on a DIY blog that we admire very much called The Nester, there is a 31 Days challenge starting and we are IN!

Yes, that means that we will be posting daily throughout October.  Which, well, means that we’ll be writing everyday!  (We say this while chanting “We think we can, we think we can!”).   To make things even more fun we’ve chosen a topic that’s near and dear to our hearts.



“Someday is not a day of the week.” – Janet Dailey

Actually, this series of posts will be titled “31 Days of Anti-Procrastination” or lovingly “How to get off your butt and finish something around your home”.

“It is easier to resist at the beginning than at the end.”

- Leonardo da Vinci

Here at The Home Avengers we are unabashedly honest about our issues with finishing things.  We even created our own villain that we constantly battle called Ultra Unfinished.

“You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.” – Abraham Lincoln

We’re going to motivate you to ditch your procrastinating ways while overcoming our own.
