I've been talking to many women lately who are stressing out over their to-do lists.
We're almost at the end of September and everything has ramped up after the summer. I'm hearing that many people are feeling over-committed already and wondering how they're going to get it all done?
Our never-ending to-do lists can actually cause a lot of stress.
It's great to write everything down so we don't have to worry about missing or forgetting things, but when that list get’s to be pages and pages long, it can actually cause us to get less done because we're overwhelmed and don’t know where to start.
Of course all of this comes from great intentions. We want to achieve big things in life. We want to be helpful, accommodating. We don’t want to let ourselves or others down.
While we're good at writing things down on our to-do list, we’re not good at prioritizing and editing that list. We write it all down and wonder "now how is all of this going to get done?"
And for many of us busy women, the other question we have to ask is, "am I on my to-do list?"
Chances are your to-do list is filled with work tasks, family responsibilities, household chores, bill paying, appointments to organize, meals to plan, items to purchase. You and your needs, dreams and desires are usually pretty far from the top of the list, if they are even on there at all!
If you can relate to any of this, you're probably feeling overwhelmed, anxious and maybe like you’re a failure. You compare yourself to other women who seem to be able to do it all. But why can’t you?
In today's video I talk about why running to-do lists don't work, I share an example of what not to do when it comes to time management and offer a new approach to your to-do list, one that will bring a sense of freedom and ease.
