What Can You Learn From Your ‘To Do” List?

July 28th, 2008 in Personal Growth[ 4 Comments ]

In this hectic, sometimes chaotic life, we push ourselves to do more without the satisfaction of ever completing our ‘to do’ list.     Do you subscribe to the thought that more is better?  I Can!  Yet, I also know this is trouble for me because there is never enough.  So…I made a decision!

I’ve decided that the top 3 activities on my ‘to do’ list must be done…no matter what. I get to decide what is most important for me to do in a day.   The night before I designate my 3 top activities for the next day, and ‘first things first’ is my slogan when I start the new day. 

All about books!

I sometimes wonder how much of what I’ve learned in life comes from experiences with people or through reading books. I know there is no way to tell the difference, yet as I look around my library of self-help or self-growth books, I am who I am today partly because of the thousands of words within those books. Those words have seeped into my inner being and helped me form many of my beliefs around life.
