3 Things a Day

Ever feel like your To Do list is getting out of control?

Have a million things on there?

Cut the crap and….

Do 3 things a day.

Every morning, I make a quick list.

I try to vary it by picking a task in each category: Household, Blog, Personal, Work.

For example, today is:

  1. Laundry and Ironing
  2. Clean up Blog emails
  3. Vacuum apartment (I think I saw a dust bunny with her family come up and wave hello)

If I had work it’d be:

  • Some-major-job-related-task
  • Laundry and Ironing
  • Eat a whole chocolate bar (okay, just kidding) Back up all my files on hard drives

After those 3 things, you feel that you’ve accomplished SOMETHING instead of wasting the day away.

You’ve cleared up a bit of your To Do list that you keep telling yourself you’ll get around.

And you feel free to do whatever you like for the rest of the day (maybe more To Do items?)
