How many of us carry a ‘to-do’ list around with our every step – inside a pocket, tucked away in a wallet or purse, or in a notebook like Indiana Jones? I remark carry it around vs. simply making a list because normally a ‘to-do’ list is relatively long seemingly never ending as we keep adding to the list. Is there ever a day when thoughts engulf our very being of “What am I going to DO?” Perhaps that is why it is necessary to make a list in the first place, we need to stay busy.
Flip side – with so much happening on a daily basis, a list is absolutely necessary in order to get everything done without forgetting something. The list becomes a mind tool, either ensuring we do not have too much free time on our hands or as a reminder lest we forget to pick up the kids from school, the hoagie rolls for sub night, or the bacon.
Prepared to-do list templates make it easy to keep track of what has and hasn’t been done. Not only are the items numbered but usually there is also check boxes to mark off each item as it is completed. Neat. Right? YUK! Remember…to-do lists are never ending so each time a new to-do is added to the list following order becomes a mute task.
Let’s have some fun because we all need something to DO that is normally not found on a daily to-do list. Some of the ideas below are cr-r-r-razy but #1 really sounds terrific! Of course #7 would work on Get a Different Name Day. Are you game?
Because we all need something to DO… and we all need to DO something!
