I have a large whiteboard that hangs in my office, right above a cork board that holds all manner of important documents, like bills to pay, a lanyard from a recent conference, a reminder to go to the dentist this month, and a picture of Anna from Frozen that my toddler painted for me.
There are currently three to-do lists competing for space on that whiteboard. One for work, one for my blog, and one for our home. We have a tendency to start projects around here and forget to finish the small details, so that one is full of exciting things like “finish grout” and “clean closets.”
It’s interesting to look at the three lists and watch which projects I work through the fastest. The “blog” list is shorter but has larger tasks on it because I like to dream big. The “work” list is longest and the “home” list tends to stick around. What I realized is that I tend to tackle first the projects that are on my “get to” list – not my “have to” list.
I’m over at (in)courage today sharing the rest -will you join me?
