I have 3 things I want to accomplish in the near future.
- Lose some weight
- Develop a plan for keeping this house clean
- Finish my dissertation
I used to make to-do lists that listed the things in the order I wanted to do them. Those lists worked well for me. I would set out what I wanted to do that day and knock them out one by one. It wasn't perfect, but overall it worked well. I also know that if I am organized and follow my to-do lists, I generally end up with lots of free time. Being organized takes more time initially, but frees up time in the end. Plus, I want to be organized. I hate being disorganized and not knowing where things are or what I'm doing. Ugh!!! I hate that.
Where is all this leading? Well, today I am making a to-do list that includes getting organized and planning my days for cleaning, working out, and dissertation writing. Many of these things can be done simultaneously or while watching TV. Since I have developed the inability to really sit still to watch TV, I think this will be the perfect solution. So today will be the day of planning and setting things up for success. I'm excited about that and looking forward to it. I also need to decide if I should block out time on my schedule for these things or just make a list. What will work better for me????
