List Making is NOT Overrated!
So do you make lists? Why or why not? How do you track appointments, diet, work, and get things done? Is your phone a help or hindrance?
Many of my friends and colleagues have gone back to using a pad of paper and an appointment book. The act of writing things down helps our memory to stay sharp. Put the visual aspect of looking at our goals, appointments, and plans is necessary to stay on top of things.
Running a business, caring for the home, or driving a car all require focus and timely chores. We have calls to make, files to put away, and end of year projects at the office. At home there is cleaning, laundry, beds to be made for guests, and foods to prepare. Driving a car means keeping it in good shape and making sure it is filled with gas. If you have pets and of course, I do have Rosy, we are responsible for feedings and caring for them. Today she has an appointment for a nail trim.
List making is one of the best things I do for myself. It keeps me on task and removes clutter from my mind. I live by Mel Robbin’s 5 Second Rule of 5,4,3,2,1-JUST DO IT for many things. For those items that take more time and thought, I make a list. Currently I have a list of things to remember for the Holiday Preparation. The sequence of things I have to defrost, bake, or make according to each day.
As we enter into the week of Christmas and Holiday Events, may your lists serve you well. Enjoy each day as fully as you can and may you find peace!
