‘Oh that my steps may be steady, keeping the course you have set’ – Psalm 119:5 msg
I have tossed my daily TO DO list and now work on an I WILL list. Simply thinking about ‘what I should do’ verses ‘what I will do’ is a perspective shift that has helped me to move forward.
Alongside my I WILL list I now have checklists. Many activities require a number of steps, as if putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Once I determine what I will do, I look at what must be done to complete that task.
- determine the topic
- open the software so I may type as phrases or particular words come to mind
- type, delete, type, repeat
- proof read for spelling/grammar
- set categories
- set tags
- schedule the post
To you, this may be excessive. Perhaps for you it all comes naturally and impulsively. I used to be able to do that as well. I don’t know if it is aging, time of life, or just a cluttered mind
By breaking it down, I stay on course, feel a sense of accomplishment and realize that I am closer to my goal with each step.
What works best for you? How do you stay on top of your TO DO lists and accomplishments?
