[quote=”amanda” post=2992]We often write a list of things to do in order to keep ourselves organized. We might go about it in different ways, but there are some little hints and tips I wanted to share with you to make it enjoyable and fun. 😉

The first important thing is what you are going to call your list. If you call it, “Fun things to do” you are already assuming that the things on the list are going to be fun to do. You are projecting a mindset ready for fun. 🙂

When you make your list, put only 6 of the most important things on it that you need to do that day. When you have a short list, you will most likely complete what you have on the list and you will feel accomplished. It will make you feel good. The next day pick up 6 of the most important things for that day. B)

When you have your 6 things, place the most important one on the very top, then the less important next until your list of 6 things is written. Then start with the number one and keep doing it until you have it done. Then go to the next one on the list, finish it and keep moving down the 3rd, until your list is completed. By doing that I have found that I spend between 1/3 – ½ of the time less completing things on my list than I used to do. It saved me lots of time that I could use for something else. Like more time for myself. :woohoo:

If you find yourself that you still have one or two things from the list that need to be done the next day, follow the same idea. Pick 6 of the most important things for that day. Write them in the order of importance and start from number one. 🙂

By making short lists and prioritizing them, you will find that you will do things more efficiently, have the feeling of accomplishment every day and have fun like never before. And the most important, you will feel great!!! 🙂 :cheer: :woohoo:[/quote]

If there are things that need to be done but you don’t like to do them or they make you feel uncomfortable; like making a phone call or paying bills, then change the way you write it on your list to something that makes you feel good/grateful. It sure helps me! :cheer:
