Change the Way You Look at Your To-do List

redo your to-do listChange the Way You Look at Your To-do List

I have to get this off my chest. Last night, I didn’t take the time plan out my day. I did a quick run down of my activities this morning, hoping I wouldn’t lose my momentum of productivity.
It is not working. I am stuck. The items I have put down as my first to-do’s to X off of the day are just not doing it for me.
In my mind, I am throwing an “I don’t want to do this!” temper tantrum .  But I cannot let this fit overtake my entire day.  I have to keep moving forward.
What do you do when you have hit a stone wall?
Taking action even when you are dragging your feet is the only option.  It is hard when you need to get your dreaded tasks done  along with other fun projects on your list.

I have a game plan  and  it is so easy.

Choose the task that you want to work on right now.

It is the one that you are excited about and will be a piece of cake to check off.  Sometimes you need to do the fun things first. They are the ones that keep your enthusiasm and momentum.  Haven’t you ever noticed that it is much easier to tackle the harder projects when you are happy and at ease.

Make it one of your goals to work your days with enthusiasm, making your “instinctual” inner programing part of your day. This instinctual programming is deeply ingrained in who you are. It is what makes you successful and helps focus your energy in what you are born to do.

Don’t ignore the part of you that enjoys brainstorming, researching, organizing or making things with your hands.  This is simply how you work. It is part of who you are.

If you choose to work the hard things first, you will sabotage the projects that you love because you have used up all the energy going into something that you are fighting to do.

Start your day doing something fun, productive, and getting you closer to your goal.

I am definitely not saying to shove those other important items under the rug.  If some of those necessary activities on your list need to be done, maybe find someone who can help you out.  Just don’t let them drain you of your given potential.  Seek the help you need to make things happen.

With Love,

Dawn Aurora
