Hellloooo internet. I’ve missed you. Since I last updated I moved and got a new job. So that’s why I’ve been MIA.
Now that explanations are out of the way, I need to post about my epically awesome to do list.
It all started last night. I wasn’t tired and watching tv. It was that awful time where it’s too late to get started on any new projects but you’ve been struck with motivation and want to do something. So I wrote a list. An epic list. An epically long list of things I wanted to get done the next day. The list included small things like “paint my nails” -a task that requires zero brain cells but I always put off, to serious work things and important errands.
I write to do lists a lot and always seem to either ignore them, half ass them, or add on to them. But this time was different. I was determined and motivated, and approached it as a challenge.
How did I do? AWESOME. I did most of them including the most important ones. I missed one completely, adjusted a few.
Here’s what I learned:
1. I can get so much more done if I don’t waste time. By that I mean Facebook. Given the right tools, I could probably cure the common cold if the internet wasn’t here to lure me into killing time.
2. I need to work on doing tasks more quickly, specifically shopping.
3. There are secret pockets of time in the day that you can get stuff done. I used my train commute to cross an easy task off. Normally I just sit there and try to guess where the smell is coming from.
4. I procrastinate, but it’s easier to not when you’ve got an epically awesome to do list to conquer.
5. Starting the week off with an epically awesome to do list is a good way to start the week. I feel accomplished instead of starting out slowly and falling behind.
It took me until 2am to finish but I feel great! I highly recommend creating to do lists and treating them like a challenging adventure instead of a burden.
And with that, I bid you a goodnight as I finish my last completed task.
