I think most of our daily tasks can be achieved if we moodle our way through them.
I can look at a room full of things-to-be-packed and think, ‘arghghh! this will take me six weeks!’
Or I can approach a corner side-long, see a shoe-box full of tax returns, and think ‘that will fit nicely into the bottom of a medium box. I’ll make up one box and then put it in and then see what else fits.’
Before you know it, a box has been filled and you follow your nose to the next task, which is cleaning the kitchen cupboards. Not just one cupboard at a time but one corner of a shelf at a time. Enjoying the lemony smell of cleaning fluid as you go, and taking satisfaction in rubbing away the sticky spots of old jam.
Moodle moodle moodle. Just saying the word conjures the spirit of moodling.
I felt much better afterwards. Turning work into moodling doesn’t mean we don’t have to deal with our stuff, or that we’re not human beings any more, or that we don’t have to sometimes take ourselves gently yet firmly by the hand and do things we don’t want to do.
Chop wood, carry water. Fill another packing box, scrub the conservatory floor.

If you’d like to improve your moodling skills, we’re running a new course this August to fit nicely with any holiday plans you might already have. Summer Moodle. It even sounds delicious, doesn’t it? If you’d like to take advantage of the earlybird offer (places will be limited) treat yourself now.
