In recent days, the feeling of being overwhelmed has been washing over me like a tsunami. So many parts of my project to start or complete, speaking to people and booking appointments by squishing half an hour here and there. Not my usual style. I like to chat and be relaxed when we are talking. Not watching the clock and feeling agitated. I like to listen and have time to hear what is being said to me.
The busy-ness had to change, to change how I ran my business.
I sat down, cleared my head and wrote my list. It was exhaustive. So I rewrote it with this most urgent mini projects at the top, I ordered the others and decided which were to come first. The whole process took around 45 minutes. I felt as though I had achieved a great deal!
In actual fact, I had not made the best use of those 45 minutes. In that time, I could have written a blog or put a couple of posts together for social media. Looking at my list, I could have achieved any one or at least part of any of those things on my list. Instead, I chose to write and rewrite all the things I need to do….. in a list!
Now, I am definitely a list person, in fact I write lists within lists! They can be very helpful. Especially as a procrastination tool – if we let it.
However, the realisation of what I had just been doing somehow made my head clearer with the tasks I needed to complete.
I simply needed to pick one and do it.
Was it that simple? Yes!! You have just read it 😊
So, when you also have a list of to-do’s, pick one task that is on your “list” and just do it x
