Clear Off That To-Do List!

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

Does your to-do list just keep growing and you are not getting around to many of the tasks?

Your “list” can actually be detrimental and make you feel overwhelmed. To renew yourself and to re-energize, take these steps:

1. Determine if this task really has to be done, and if not, eliminate it from your list
2. Move any task that is not time sensitive to a long term list that you don’t look at every day
3. Choose a day and complete the tasks left on your list – all of them

A to-do list should make you feel good each time you are able to cross something off. By starting with a clean slate, you will feel happy because you will see your list shorten instead of grow!
