Where information, entertainment, or creation, is just a few keystrokes away, it seems that twenty-four hours just isn’t enough.
Sometimes I get frustrated. Like most people, I’ll be thinking about 20 different things, but only be able to work on one specific thing at a time. Sometimes I wish I could just upgrade my body, install a few extra arms, or even better yet, clone myself.
But since these options aren’t readily available, (at least not yet) there is one thing I do that helps keep me on track. Make a list.
Every morning, the very first thing I do is make a list. This helps me prioritize my goals, schedule my day, and most importantly – get things done. If for whatever reason there‘s something that I didn’t get to yesterday, then I just move it up to the new days list. This way, if I have a goal, it’ll get done. It’s that’s simple. I keep the list handy, and add to it throughout the day.
For big projects, it’s a great way to track progress.
I realize the idea of making a list is not a new one; you find thousands articles talking about how helpful they are, so I’m not going to get into the details. All I’m saying is that they’re helpful.
