Look at your current to-do list.
What has been on there longer than you can remember?
And I am willing to bet that it will move your business and life forward. Things like:
- run a marathon
- start a business
- launch a podcast
- write a book
The longer the item stays on your to-do list, the more resistance you build along with disgust and anxiety always seeing it there.
Trust me, I get it. Life is busy, and completing everything on your to-do list can seem insurmountable.
It's funny that the to-do list is one of the most productive and tools that we have in our arsenal, also a source of overwhelm and anxiety.
I'm not going to sit here and discuss nor analyze the reason and psychology behind why it works, and it doesn't work since you, and I can likely agree that they do work in some shape and form.
So how do we leverage the to-do list to not only help us get things done but also as a source of happiness and accomplishments?
After reading and studying countless productivity books and blogs with various strategies, including NOT doing them at all.
I finally landed on a strategy that took me years that works for me, which empowers me to crush out multiple projects at the same time while living and enjoying the present life.
(tl;dr: I create a new to-do list every single day to finish each item on that given day.)
What do you put on your to-do list?
To-do lists are everywhere. We all use them. They are used for project management, travel packing lists and grocery lists, to name a few.
Edwin, ok fine! So what do I put on my To-do list?
