Ditch Your TO-DO List! Use This Instead!

Create a Facebook event page for the next show … Finish editing the new video … Sign up and start a profile on the Hot New Social site … Post a link to the new blog post on Twitter … Take the car in for a state inspection … Make time to write songs and practice … Oh yeah, find time to eat and sleep …

No matter how diligent and effective are, there’s always a growing list of things you just can’t get to during any given day, week, or month.

That’s why I suggest you start a new list

Your Got-Done List.

And guess what?

At the end of each day I was amazed at how much I had accomplished over the course of several hours. As I looked over each day’s long list of completed tasks, I felt satisfied and productive.

How empowered do you feel when you focus only on the unfinished tasks you still have yet to do?

The best way to get things done is to create both lists …

One to record the important stuff you want or need to get done, and another to log the (hopefully) many things you actually do.

I’d love your thoughts on this!

Have you ever used this idea? Did I miss something?
