Do You Have a To-Do List?

Do you have a to-do list? Sometimes to-do lists can seem overwhelming by putting too many demands on you, too many deadlines. Well you're not the only person who feels this way. I did too until I re-named my to-do list "My Goals".

Lots of people hate to-do lists because sometimes they can make you feel like it's all negative pressure closing in on you to get something done. I found that by calling my old to-do list "My Goals" it seems to take a lot of the negative feeling away and gives me a more optimistic vibe.

The old to-do lists can make you feel too much pressure. But if you make them your goals, well, then you can actually feel like your achieving something instead of just checking something off a plain old boring list.

Another way to give your My Goals list more initiative is to put some positive things on it.

Simple things that you like to do such as "have lunch". It may seem silly, but that way you can look forward to lunch, actually enjoy it and know that you've achieved one of your goals for the day.

Your "My Goals" list is also a lot less depressing and overwhelming when you only put six things on it and when you make sure at least two are things you already want to do. A smaller number of items that you want to achieve will make it much easier to actually achieve them. You're not looking at a whole litany of stuff and becoming overwhelmed before you even get started.

Are you de-cluttering your home? You can de-clutter your Goals list too. Learn to pare down what you need to get done and only put those things on your Goals list that are extremely important. Yes, lunch is important.

Before you know it you will have marked all of your "Goals" as having achieved them. Now doesn't that make you feel like you've accomplished something!
