Make a list: Spend time making a list of maintenance and improvement projects you’d like to begin. A well-considered list will help you to set reachable goals.
Assess your skills: Carefully consider which projects you are fully capable of completing. For example, unless you have sufficient experience with electrical, plumbing you should probably leave those tasks to the professionals.
Establish priorities: what is most important to you? Which projects will be the most costly? Timeliness, quality or cost? It is always wise to determine specific goals and priorities so that you are prepared once you begin.
Create a budget: For every project that you want to complete, make certain that you have a firm budget in place. This will keep you from overspending.
One step at a time: When it’s time to begin, remember to pace yourself! Rome wasn’t built in a day….Complete one task at a time, once complete you will feel the satisfaction of accomplishment.
