This question should be answered honestly: “Have you ever put items on your list that you really didn’t want to do and then you made sure you didn’t have the time to get it completed? Why are you laughing? Caught you! Let’s face it, there are many times we go through the motions just to admit to ourselves that we can say we’re doing the right things, however, our actions really show that the opposite is true.
Here’s an idea for you to try. Admit honestly that you believe the concept of preparing a “To Do” list is important and it helps organize yourself to have a productive day or week, but your approach should change in how you view it. Perfect; now change the NAME of the “To Do” list to “Achievement” list and see how your approach changes to everything on it. You feel so much better addressing each task because you have “achieved something” when completed that you can now look back on and say to yourself “Well done”. “To Do” implies work that has to be done where as “Achievement” implies a reward or pat on the back for a job “well done”.
It’s all in your head to sort out the right approach that works for you… allowing you to feel organized and proud of what you have done.
