Sort out your life with a to do list

  1. 1. Sort Out Your Lifewith a To-Do
  2. 2. There is something so verysatisfying about crossing a task off your To Do list.
  3. 3. If you don’t write yourself any other handy lists, this is a very good place to start.
  4. 4. If your To Do list is very long, thenyou might need to examine your life a bit. Do you really need to get all those things done in one day?
  5. 5. Or can some of them be left off, delayed slightly or delegated?Perhaps it’s time for you to be more realistic in your expectations for yourself and possibly say no to a few requests.
  6. 6. Don’t beat yourself up and tell yourself you’re a failure justbecause you’re not Superman or Superwoman and can’t geteverything in a massive list done within a 24 hour period.
  7. 7. Even if you could get it all done, you won’t be able to sustain thatsort of pressure for long – burnoutand/or depression are likely results of this sort of over-achievement.
  8. 8. The Greeks have a proverb thatsays that if you try to do more than three major tasks in one day, thegods will kick you. It’s good advice!
  9. 9. But there’s more to making lists than just To Do lists.
  10. 10. Another very good list that will helpyou beat stress and make you feelbetter about yourself is a gratitude list.
  11. 11. This sort of list will help you get some perspective on life and helpyou realise that you’ve got plenty to be happy about.
  12. 12. You can write one big gratitude listin a single session where you try to list, say, 50 things that you’re grateful for.
  13. 13. Another possibility is to have agratitude list as a form of journal,where you write down a minimum of six things that you’ve enjoyed that day or you’re grateful for.
  14. 14. These can be simple things, suchas “sunny weather” or “great cup of coffee for morning tea” or more significant things like “manage to close the deal with that important client”.
  15. 15. Gratitude lists are especially helpfulif you feel the years creeping up onyou and you start hankering to be a teenager again:
  16. 16. make a list of all the reasons why the age you are is better thanbeing a teenager (come on, youdon’t really want to go back to the days of school uniforms, exams and acne, do you?).
  17. 17. Gratitude lists look back, but other lists look forward.
  18. 18. Make a list of your goals. Thesecan be from any area of life, suchas career, family, travel or health.
  19. 19. Don’t censor yourself – nobody’sgoing to see this list except you!
  20. 20. Live your life to the fullest. Beat the stress and sort out your life with a smart to-do list.
