Organizing your to do list is the first step to making progress and feeling in control of your time and your goals.
Today we are talking about falling in love…with your to do list. Sometimes we have a love/hate relationship with all of the tasks we need to accomplish. It’s great to have an organized way to track all the things you have going on and it’s even better to check them off when they are done! Still, it can be overwhelming to see everything you need to do or worse, … it’s upsetting to feel like tasks keep carrying over to another day and you aren’t making progress. The way to get back the warm and fuzzy feelings which come with being a productive goal getter is prioritizing.
Prioritizing in its simplest form is knowing everything you need to do and then ranking it in order of importance. Sounds easy, right? Not really. You play a lot of roles in your life: employee, supervisor, partner, parent, child, sibling, volunteer, friend. You have responsibilities in all of these roles and they may appear to compete with each other. So how exactly do you get it all done?
Let’s be honest, we are constantly getting new tasks as we go through our day. Your boss tells you to update a document, your partner texts you to pick up some dinner rolls on the way home, your child texts that they need their permission slip signed for the class field trip, your BFF sends you a DM to plan a girl’s weekend. Do you really have time to get the right list to add these tasks or would you rather just add it to your Main List?
