…the number of things that I need to get done.
Some are small things, and some are big; some aren’t important and some are. Some don’t cost anything, and some do. Some I can do myself, and some I’m going to need help.
I need a list. Actually, I need several lists.
I put part 1 of my plan into place today: I made a schedule for Monday through Saturday, that sets in place times to get things done and times to exercise. Sunday will be down time if I want, or for working outside if I want.
Part 2 is to draw up some lists. First I’m going to make three lists: things I can do that don’t take long, things I can do that are longer-term projects, and things I can’t do myself. Then, I’m going to prioritize them.
That way, when I’m feeling overwhelmed by everything I have to do, I can just look at the list and do what’s next. I think it will give me a better sense of control, and should actually improve the rate of getting things done.
We’ll see how it works.
