I love lists. I love to make lists. And I make lists of all sorts . . . books I want to read, movies I want to watch, things I have to do at work, things I have to do at home, things I want to knit and more. Lists keep me focused and grounded and there is very little that is more satisfying than checking something off of a list.
I’ve been floundering lately with lists, though. I would sort of make one and I would sort of pay attention to it and I would sort of finish things. But not really. Without deadlines and hard stops a lot of things on my lists would just stay on my lists.
Yesterday, though, I decided to make an adjustment and see if it would help with my focus. I made two columns in my journal and on the right side I wrote a list of a bunch of things I want to do. On the left side I wrote today I will. My goal is to do two things from the right column every day this week.
So far, so good.
