We all have them. We feel more in control or so we think with a daily weekly monthly and yearly To Do List. And how many times you access your calendar and you jump up and down with excitement right? Not quite because your daily To Do List can bring waves of overwhelm .
Why is that? Because as much as we aspire to get a bunch of things done within a set time, it’s usually unrealistic and actually unnecessary. The quality can be sloppy because you’re more focused on crossing things off your list than with purpose and intent.
So what’s a to do list anyway – it’s a list of things you want to accomplished. Sometimes they’re placed in order of priority or not and the feeling of accomplishment comes when they’re checked DONE.
So how’s your To Do List been working for you? Having a to do list can give you a false sense of purpose and importance. Take it a step further and establish a GET DONE LIST.
I’m not telling you to scrap your to do list…I’m telling you you’re going to achieve meaningful fulfilling results with a GET DONE LIST in place long term.
Here’s how to do it. From your TO DO LIST choose no more than 4 things that are high priority for the day week month or year. Prioritize them according to need. Plan your execution and get to work.
And once you’ve covered those task you can give your attention to the other things on your list.
By the end of your day you’ll not only have a great feeling of accomplishment, you’ll look at your GET DONE LIST with a strong sense of fulfillment and internal and external evidence of executing with purpose.
