They're never done. Never. No matter what, the to-do list is ever growing and seldom changing.
Let's take a look at a typical to-do list in my house:
- Straightening up
- Pick up prescriptions
- Feed kids/dogs
- Make dinner
- Get anniversary card
So here's what I do. I make a "Ta-Da" List instead. Make a list of things you accomplished today, both big and small. Because even if it's not on your to-do, you did it and that's what counts.
Here's today's Ta-Da List:
- Fed kids/dogs
- Load of laundry
- Put dishes away
- Picked up prescription
- Went to fundraiser lunch for a local group who's home burned down
- Took said lunch to Marshall's office so we could all eat together
- Picked up boxes for best friend who's moving
- Made tea & kool-aid
So next time you have a daunting, never ending to-do list... maybe rearrange it into a Ta-Da list instead!
