I believe your year is off to a great start already. If it isn’t, there’s time enough to make adjustments.
Yesterday was full and overflowing for me. I’m not on vacation so there’s lots to be done, regardless of what day of the year it is.
Which brings me to today’s topic: my To Do list.
The To-do list is one of the most powerful management tools I’ve found. I started using it about sixteen years ago when I had a Swiss Boss who would insist on the to-do list. It is a simple and very effective tool for managing time and keeping on track with your tasks and targets.
Some people advocate making your list the night before and I completely agree with this line of thinking.
However, I’m usually so tired at the end of the day that I fall into bed and can barely manage to hold pen and paper😂
So, I make my list first thing in the morning after I pray and study my Bible. Then I get ready and start working my list down. I don’t always make my lists in the order in which I intend to do the tasks; I write the way I remember, so I may find that item #15 is the most urgent task of the day. I don’t sweat it, I just get to it.
Some things may arise in the course of the day that push some tasks down the list or make them unnecessary. Again, I don’t sweat it, I just get to it.
What happens when I don’t get to a task in the course of the day?
I’ll tell you later, right now my list is calling out to me.
Do you use a to-do list? Do share!
