Your To Do List is TOOOOO Long

11 Nov

Now if you’ve followed my blogs and posts across social media you know I believe in daily To Do lists.
I firmly believe that they provide a simple guideline and a gauge of your follow through so you can have some accountability in your life and business.

I also recommend keeping lists for at least a week so you see the progress and can build off of it.

However, there are 2 problems with most people’s To Do lists-
They are unorganized and too long.

Your list needs to be actionable.
What does this mean?
Simply that you create a list based on building momentum by listing items by ease of action and necessity.
Do the key items first.
Then do the easy stuff.
If for you the opposite builds momentum, than by all means have at it.

Next your list shouldn’t be 60 items long.
Yeah you need to do all of these things- or they wouldn’t be on your list right?
However, this is a sure tactic to making you feel overwhelmed from the onset.

The quick fix here is to make a master list Saturday or Sunday, assuming you’re week starts Monday.
Then every day make a short list that addresses these items in an orderly fashion.

These two tweaks will help build momentum, which In turn will add clarity.

An ancillary benefit is that a rested mind sleeps and works better.
This will occur as you declutter your To Do Lists.

Live Brolic!
