Everybody has a lot to do. If you use a To-Do list to keep up – and it’s stressing you – it may be time to replace it with a “Did I Do It List.”
To-Do Lists transform you into an expert at chasing checkmarks. Chasing anything is stressful – and there is a better way:
1) Never commit to more than you can get done in one day. That takes awareness and honesty.
2) Once you know what you need to get done, add it to your “Did I Do It List” and use it for reference throughout your day.
3) Always double-check that you are accomplishing tasks you determined as vital before taking on additional items.
A focused path produces fewer random tasks. Using a “Did I Do It List” will focus you on your goals and create quick results.
