Getting It Done

To do a to do list or not to do a to do list? :) I go back and forth. If I have a list, I can start to feel pressured and overwhelmed. If I don't have a list, I often forget things that I wanted to accomplish for that day. Getting into better habits might help overall with not forgetting things, but one day isn't like another around here anymore! I'm liking this stage of my life, though, however busy. I really enjoy being around my girls.

I make two lists, sometimes. The 1-2 things that HAVE to be done, and the optional list.

Or, I make a list, then look at it and ask myself, "Which of these items will I be most depressed about if I didn't get to them by the end of the day?" Then I write that item on a NEW list and throw away the first one.

I call it triage.

To-do lists are all about perception, cooking the numbers, and internal, mental politics. :-)
