Do you obsess over little things?

Kiddo has started to make this clicking noise. Kind of a cluck, kind of a snap with her tongue. She's discovered the fun of it and does it...a lot...which has led to a discussion of developing bad habits. We've covered biting nails, twirling hair, the usual suspects. How they are tough to break when you start them (which is why I am getting on her about not making clicking noises). And she asked me what bad habit I have...

I obsess over little things. Could be shopping online for the right new wallet to replace the 10-year-old one I have with the busted zipper that is now entering its fourth week. Or finding that right word for a blog post. Or focusing too much on her clucking-clicking noise.

Sometimes the uber-focus on some small thing is warranted. It is a good thing, it saves us money or makes us healthier or happier or a better writer...but other times, it is definitely a problem. I waste time. I waste mental space and energy. I get caught in that circular thinking that takes me nowhere but, well, in a circle.

It's a bad habit I am consciously work on to break...it isn't easy, folks.

Do you obsess over little things? What is your worst bad habit?

I think I obsess about things that are done and over with, I basically think too much. That's probably my worst habit as well.

I am a picker, nasty habit. Don't bite nails anymore or smoke. I've learned to be more at ease and enjoy life.
