Make Today Amazing


Hustle... Fold Laundry... Clean the House... Get the Groceries... Weed the Garden... Rake the Leaves... Jump in Leaves... Bake Cookies... Coloring Books and Fall Crafts... Story Time... Reorder Packing Supplies and Ship Boxes... Build an Empire... Meet with Suppliers... Marketing Campaign... Launch New Product Line at Midnight... Take over the World... But First Coffee... Around my house, we keep things hectic. You see, if I'm not chasing after my busy toddler, I'm running errands, growing my business, or simply trying to keep it together. {wink} But, I have come to the realization that I can't do everything. Sure, I can try as hard as I'd like, but in the end there will always be items left on the To-Do list. And sometimes, despite feeling like I've been running around all day, I find myself asking, "what did I even accomplish today?"

On occasion, my husband and I will set aside a day to conquer a half a gazillion tasks together. Strangely, these days often end with us wondering what happened to the day and why in the world the to-do list is still here... {sigh} But honestly? It does make sense. When we have too much to do in too little time to do it, we are setting ourselves up to fail. And setting ourselves up for one heck of an overwhelming day. Lately, I've instituted a new rule for tackling the all encompassing business/family/nesting to-do list.

So what's this new method you may be wondering? I set 3 goals that I most want to accomplish for the day. Whatever three things that will make me feel like I got the most out of my day. Take this past Sunday for instance. I decided that the three big (doable) things that would have the most impact would be to tackle the yard work, move boxes into the attic and organize the closets. Low and behold, before the day was over all three things were done. completely. And though many other things got done like the dishes and writing this blog, other things like folding the laundry didn't. And that's okay. {smile}

For all of y'all with a lot on your plates right now, you may want to give this a try. Just ease up on your mile-long-to-do list and hone in on 3 biggies that will have you feeling really amazing.
