    "Just a quick follow-up note on the work your crews did at my house over the last couple of weeks. In short; the porch railing, painting and tuck pointing was done professionally and looks great. More important, the crews that were out were customer service oriented, thoughtful, friendly and always let me know what was going on. I would not hesitate to recommend Reilly Painting."

  • How to Do What You Don’t Want to Do


    Yep, it's Monday, and we've all learned to hate it. It's difficult to get motivated on a Monday. You're thinking about how relaxing your weekend was, and how it's not fair that the weekends weren't made to be longer. But if you're willing to work on changing that attitude, your tasks will become more doable and your days less daunting. Here are some ideas to get you started:

    1. Think about why you need to get this particular thing done. Even if it's a menial task, there is a reason it needs doing.

    2. Think about what's stopping you from doing it, or why you just don't want to. Are you afraid of not doing it correctly?

    3. Try to erase all of the expectation, the idea that life should be easier. You have to do this, and that's the reality.

    4. Focus on the purpose, instead of possible results. This will make you more involved and thorough.

    5. Sometimes stuff sucks. It just does. But it's usually worth it.

    6. Discipline. If you don't make yourself do something, who else will?

    7. Take breaks. Even if you do a little at a time, you're getting things done.

    8. Stop your thoughts from trailing off. It's going to happen, but you're in charge.

    9. Think about what you're thankful for. Yes, you might be doing boring work, but you have a job.

    10. Working on the previous steps will help you learn about yourself and help you make changes.
