Bzzz…Busy Lists, Honey Do’s, etc.
Friday, February 5th, 2021

The happiest of all lives is a busy schedule. ~Voltaire

I’m not sure that’s true. The thought of a slothful day sounds like heaven. Lately, because I have so much work on my plate, I rise around 6 AM to begin my days. I write down every little thing I want to complete in the order I want to complete them. None of that Steven Covey stuff about working on the highest priorities first because if I didn’t put “Shower” on the list, I’d forget!

Today’s list includes a shower, yes, and editing a certain number of pages, writing a certain number of pages, reading a certain number of stories, cleaning my desktop (my art supplies have overtaken its surface!), blogging, the daily art project, and many little administrivia things (phonecalls to be made, for example), and if I can get to it, vacuuming and mopping!

I like a list—even a long one. Today’s has 15 times! Checking off accomplishments is my nirvana.

Are you a listmaker?

    I do… sometimes on paper, but mostly in my head.

    I make them. Then I promptly leave them somewhere. Usually directly opposite of where I need them. If I need my grocery list, it’s usually at work, for example! LOL!

    I never make a to do list. I just start my day by doing whatever needs to be done.

    I don’t make a list because I don’t do anything that is on it if it is for groceries I would leave at home lol

    Yes to list. Mostly I don’t write them down. And mostly never finish them.
