Dump the To Do List

I spent two hours this morning catching up on things. You know – getting things done on what I used to call my "To Do List."

I don't have a TDL anymore although that might come as a surprise to my wife. She thinks I make lists for everything and she is partially correct. But, I gave up the TDL. My list is called a WDL. I'll explain.

Instead, I write down everything that comes to mind that I want to do. Now that may sound like semantics but it isn't. My TDL from years past was made up of a lot of things that I thought I needed to do or that I should do. What was in short supply were the things that I really wanted to do and the things that I would do.

We all have things we do that we really don't want to do. For example, I hate cleaning out the cat litter boxes. But, I hate not cleaning them out even more. So, I've made the decision that it isn't something I need to do or should do but something I want to do.

It makes all the difference in the world in how I feel after it is done.

Try it yourself. Lose the words "should" and "need" in regards to your own actions – your own life. Instead replace them with what you will do and what you want to do.

What do you really want? Would you like more time with your family, more clients, more money, less stress? Then ask yourself what you will do to make it happen.

And, then you can put it on your new Will Do List.
