this to-do list is from one of my favorite bloggers, meredith (of penelope loves lists fame). she crafts honest and inspiring entries and hits the nail on the head every time. the topics are relatable and often have me saying, "oh yeah, i went through that--thanks for sharing and making me feel normal!" you can tell meredith really loves filling the big shoes over at penelope--and she's created quite a lovely community of folks over there. so without further ado, here is meredith's to-do list with tips and all!
One thing that works: the highlight system.
I list my 5 or so items for the day with highlight on those that absolutely HAVE to get done that day or are time-sensitive within the day. I focus on those first.
One thing that is a challenge: limiting myself to putting just 5 or so items on my list.
It's tough, there's always SO much to do. But, I find if I limit myself to the 5 or so most important items, I can focus on them and get them done, without getting distracted by the overwhelming weight of my overall task list. I wrote about this in more detail here.
