Whenever we take big trips, it seems like I write a long litany of To-do lists. I have lists of items to pack, items to purchase, books I want to read, things to remember...each of them written over time, over days so that I remember what need to be completed before I go. To-do lists can be critical in making sure that I don't go unprepared, missing some crucial piece of medical equipment for my son, something for my family, whatever...Forgetting something could be a life and death situation for us, making the lists even more crucial than the average person's trip!
To-do lists can also help people find balance. Formulating a plan and writing out the list can give a far better chance for success.
In the past, I wasn't a real list maker. I have always kept ideas in my head and then worked to try not to forget anything. I have become a list maker, as of late...In this phase of transformation, it is important to know what it is that you're aiming toward. How can you know if progress is being made unless you can cross it off the list.
Transformational To-do lists can be far more powerful that the average since they are how one moves from one place to another, not physically but spiritually and emotionally...
This is my time of transformation..the time of building from the base, the depths of my soul to new heights. Brick by brick it is time to build the foundation into even greater heights...While this is occurring...one always has to remember to breathe!
I thrive on lists, whether it be shopping, to-do, or just things I need to remember. And yes, marking items off those lists always feels good. The depressing part is looking at the list and going "I can't afford to do any more right now"...ReplyDelete
