In your quest to better find organization in your life, you may have fallen to the trap of using to do lists. To do lists are personal notes of your daily tasks which you try to accomplish every day. Every working professional probably had at least one in their entire life. At first, it might feel like a good decision. You feel like you’re doing a great step sorting your life.
It may even give you the feeling that you have everything in order. Eventually you’ll arrive to the point where you’ll practically hate your to-do list. It becomes a list of disappointment, something which you will have to carry, rewrite, and try and do again every single day. Writing down your tasks may make you feel like you’ve got everything in order. But creating an overloaded list will not keep you organized – just cranky. After a few days, you will feel exasperated. You’d be forced to stop, and back again to being chaotic, messy and unproductive like before.
