Comment on Quick Tip #18: Let go of “should” by Connie https://ourchildrensancestors.com/quick-tip-18-let-go-of-should/#comment-22732 Fri, 23 Apr 2021 14:56:18 +0000 https://ourchildrensancestors.com/?p=7913#comment-22732 Love this post, Janine! As a licensed counselor, I used to always encourage clients to take the word “should” right out of their vocabulary and replace it with the word “need”. It’s not what you SHOULD do right now, but what do you NEED to do. Thanks for the reminder!

Including today – while I haven’t researched every day – I have conducted research on the equivalent of 15 out of the last 20 days. I won’t be able to finish the CDs by the end of the month but hopefully at least, I’ll have caught up and done the time equivalent of researching every day for all of April.

I’m sorry to hear you lost some of your genealogy papers! (Maybe you’ll eventually have the thrill of finding them in the basement.) Organizing your genealogy resesarch is definitely doable and I hope that you can get to the point where not being able to find information to share is in the past. In the meantime, please be kind to yourself and give yourself credit for being a genealogist of decades’ standing. Thanks for commenting.

I agree that order brings calm. And I also think that it makes genealogy less frustrating and therefore more fun!

I love the idea of thinking of the refrigerator as a library!

Lynne, I’m glad you found my question thought provoking! I think pondering why you want to get organized might help you set some goals that feel more attainable so you can have lots of victories along the way. Good luck with your project!
