I love checklists! I made a list of things I want to accomplish this summer too. The list had 11 things on it (I need to add a few more) and already on my first furlough day, I knocked out 4 of them, plus one thing that I didn't have on the list. Success!!
I get paralyzed when overwhelmed too. Hence the pile of sh*t sitting on my kitchen counters still after weeks of telling myself that I really need to get it cleared off. The kitchen counter is one of our hotspots.

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
congrats on clearing out your mom's stuff, hoping you saved something with her handwriting on it.
I get overwhelmed with my perfectionism. I know exactly what I want and how I want it and if I can't find the exact thing then I don't start. I can't settle because I feel like then I will find the exact thing. As a consequence many projects don't get started or finished.
Lists only make me crazier.
with me it is house projects, so that there is not actually any room in the house except the guest room and my daughter's that is totally done. Now, no one except me, and of course DH and DS, know this or could even tell. DS's room I don't like the drapes and I need to hang a few things, but we have been in this house for 8 years.
My son's and daughter's rooms are done. Bathrooms are both done. Other rooms are still a work in progress as the ceilings have never been painted and now the walls need repained, with the exception of the bedroom, which has had NO surfaces painted and as such, now needs to be retextured b/c furniture/bodies have rubbed it off. We've been in our house for almost 6 years.
I understand. I have dresser drawers full of things that my in-laws saved of their family. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about the stuff, and they have both passed. Luckily, right now I have the space to spare. When I don't DH will have some decisions to make. It is an interesting mind exercise though, what will I save of my parent's stuff. Photos most likely, I will just scan and put them on discs. What will my children save of mine?
I've never had an attachment to "things". My sisters are all the exact opposite. I had a beautiful teapot that was my Grammies. It sat on a shelf and got dusty and didn't mean anything to me so I gave it to my sis who cherishes it! So - clutter is not a problem I my house.
dust - yes.
