If you’re anything like me, your days are full of starting stuff. You might use an old fashion pad of paper to keep track of your tasks, or maybe you use something digital like Ta-da Lists or Remember the Milk. Some days, I find myself starting more items than I finish. This can be an overwhelming feeling, as you see your task list grow. Whether it’s stuff to do around the house, around the office, or for other stuff, it’s just a simple fact. Starting things is a hell of alot easier than finishing them.
What should I get done today?
I’m in deep debt when it comes to my todo list. In fact, my todo list is out-of-date. I have piles of unfinished or half started things in my inbox, my WordPress, on pieces of paper, and in Word documents. Sound familiar? Do you have so much on your todo list that you don’t even know where to start?
Stop consuming and stop starting.
This what I’m going to try today. I’m going to close my social streams. I’m not going to read anything I don’t absolutely have to. I’m allowing myself only one break today (to watch Kitchen Table Talks Live) . I’m going to create today instead of consume. I’m not going to start anything. I’m just going to finish things today. If I owe you something, there’s a great chance you’ll be seeing it today.
So how about you? What are you going to finish today?Tweet
