Need more items on your to-do list?

I made three out-of-town trips recently. Then, just when I was beginning to feel recuperated, my son Jay arrived home from a camping trip at 11:15 p.m. one night, and I had to get up the next morning at 4:45 a.m. to drive my daughter from Dallas to Denton so that she could travel with three other graduate students to a conference in Denver.

That night, I crashed. I needed a good night’s sleep and a little perspective.

The next morning I got a big dose of perspective when I thought about Fayteen and how she is busy taking care of her daughter who has breast cancer.

During the next few weeks, we’re going to discuss some of the ways we all can get a better perspective on our to-do lists.

  • Focus on what’s important. Fayteen needs to take care of Ranna and herself. She needs to remember that she doesn’t have to apologize if she doesn’t get some of the other things on her to-do list done.
  • Remember what you can do to “recharge” when you need a boost.
  • Consider what makes you happy. Make sure to include some of those things on your to-do list.
  • Do a few things. You don’t have to do everything!
  • Make a list of things you already are doing.  Most likely, you are doing a lot.
  • Make another list of things you don’t have to do.
