I've always been a list maker, as long as I can remember, but the past few months I haven't been making them. And just when I was feeling particularly stressed about all the things I needed to do this weekend, I decided to list them out.
- Pay bills - US and Japan
- Make Ethan's caterpillar costume
- Go to the grocery store
- Pick up dry cleaning
- Buy Christmas presents
- Practice "True Love" on the ukulele
I wrote them all, one by one, and it made such a difference for me to just see all the things on paper. It felt even better to mark each one off - to actually see that I was getting things accomplished.
Now I have about 3 lists floating around me - one for work, one for Christmas, and one for home stuff. What a difference a list makes!!
