How can I get more done every day? My to-do list is overflowing with uncompleted tasks? Does this sound familiar? I know this feeling all too well! I have walked in those overflowing, worn out shoes.
When I am asked the first question above by an organizing client, I like to to turn it around. I will ask them, “ what do you actually need to get done?” This question really gets people! Somewhere along the line we’ve convinced ourselves we need to create a to-do list a mile long. But is it necessary to have a list like that? This is why you can’t get more done. Your list is filled with alot of stuff but not necessarily of substance. Your list is cluttered. A cluttered to-do list is never ending and never finished!
Here are 4 steps to decluttering your to-do list.
Give praise for steps 1,2 and 3 and look for what you did accomplish. Take a look a what you didn’t get done and try to determine why. Please don’t get stuck here, this should only take a moment or two to reflect on. Chances are you will realize it wasn’t as big of a priority as you thought it was.
As this becomes a habit you can expect to have a decluttered to-do list! Your awareness in determining what’s most important will override filling the list up with “stuff”. As with any habit, it takes practice. Make a commitment to these 4 steps for a month.
