This was a thought that occurred to me yesterday because there are some to-dos on my list which I haven't completed. I haven't implemented this myself yet but will see how it work when I do. Essentially, if there's something on your to-do list that you can't get around to you can list 3 examples of one of the following...
1. How you'll feel when the task is done (relieved, energized, calm)
2. Your reason for wanting/having to do a certain task (you promised someone you'd do something, it's a key step in a larger project, there's a deadline)
3. The benefits (you'll help someone else, you'll feel healthier, you won't have to keep re-writing it on your to-do lists.)
Hope you/we have a chance to give this a try....or then again, it's even better if we don't delay our to-dos and therefore not have to resort to this tactic. : )
Wish everyone a great week!
