I hate to do lists.
There I said it.
I have a confession to make. My office used to be plastered with sticky notes and piled high with notebooks that contained things I wanted to do.
But I quit trying to do battle with a to do list a long time ago. No matter how you try to gain control, you won’t win.
I had to laugh when I was looking around the web to see what was available on this topic. People are searching for management tools, software, templates and instructions — all to manage a to do list!
Sad, isn’t it?
This video contains a true story of a women who was so overwhelmed with (and tied to) her to do list, she just didn’t want to let go. I offered a solution that shocked her and suggested an alternative way to deal with her business.
Take three quick minutes to watch the video below for a better solution.
