An old friend pointed out that I’d been neglectful in keeping up my blogging…I suppose that is true. But there are so many other things in the world to do! And writing down my experiences always get left for another day….
My daughters often urge me to write. So I did a little bit, but still, it is something that gets left for tomorrow–and tomorrow often turns into next week…and next week brings another project, so writing conveniently gets left for last. And like many to-do lists, the bottom thing just never gets done.
I’ve even been trying (and have been somewhat successful) to make a list every morning of the major things I wanted to get done. Even minor things got on the list. I like lists, I just don’t like completing them. So I try to keep it pared down to 10 items….but there’s always 10 more things lurking in the back of my mind waiting to be included on the lists. Sometimes I make two lists.
Back in 2009 when my brother and I were sorting through the family belongings after Dad died, he got me started on lists in the morning. We sat there with our coffee and tea deciding what needed to be done for that day. It’s such a good practice–I do believe there are entire books written on how to live with lists, but if I get the book/s I’d do nothing but read instead of implementing their ideas.
Well, look at that–I even have a book in my eBay listings that might help: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Organizing your Life. I’m not saying I’m a complete idiot, but a quick review couldn’t hurt, could it?
