31 Days of Seeking Simplicity: Simplifying the To-Do List
First of all, I just want to thank everyone that has taken the time to comment so far. I am getting some great ideas and encouragement from you!
I do want to clarify: Ebay can be a great tool for making additional money and helping to weed out the clutter from your home. We actually have made over $650 this year from selling on Ebay, Amazon, etc. So it definitely can be worth your time! I personally need to get away from thinking that when I make a thrifted purchase of a name brand item I can always resell it on Ebay if it doesn't work out. I need to be more sure of keeping and using my purchases! There are also times and seasons to let this process go as it is quite time consuming (in my opinion) to list, ship, and so on.
I want to mention the to-do list briefly today and probably more in the days ahead. I have always been a list maker. I also am a person that constantly has ideas, projects, etc. In the last few months, I have been setting monthly and weekly goals. In my case, this is not working because I put too many things on my lists. I can never accomplish everything I write down. I also carry over unfinished tasks from week to week, making the lists progressively longer.
One of the ladies who commented here mentioned that she re-evaluates her priorities daily. I love this idea. I am toying with the idea of a daily to-do list that maybe only has 3-5 items on it. I know there are some great forms out there, but I think I should stick to simple. I might put something down two days in a row if it doesn't get done, or I might not. I really like the idea of re-evaluating each day.
Do you write lists? Daily, weekly, monthly to-dos? What works for you? I'd love to hear.
