What To Do
Sunday, January 24
Well, a new week begins today. This means it is time for me to list out things that I would like to get done this week. My so-called to-do list.
I start off by looking over a larger list. This list contains what I would like to accomplish during the month. Then on Sunday, I pluck out items I need to work on as well as stuff I wish to accomplish for the week. Still, this list can get quite long. It can grow from 20 to 30 items or more. This just means that I have so much to do and so little time to do it in.
Once I get the list completed, I go through and underline three or four items that are most important. Then, I will work on these items first. When I complete these items, I pick another three or four items to work on next.
But it does not stop there. From this weekly to-do list, I build a daily to-do list. I keep this list with me throughout the day. I find that I tend to get more accomplish if I keep the list in front of me. It keeps me focused on what I need to do.
I know there will be items on this list that will not get done. But, that does not keep me from trying. Currently, I have 27 items on my list of things to do. I will let you know how I did next week.
