The Kocsis Household is crazy-busy. Yours too? I know plenty of us are flying by the seat of our pants with barely time to stop and sip the coffee. Yet, when I settle into bed at night there are days when I can’t even begin to recall what I had accomplished that day. Its a sinking feeling to go through the day and feel like you have done nothing, when you were running around raged doing everything.
That is the beauty of ‘checklists’ for me. I have a weekly calendar that sits very comfortably in my purse. It goes with me everywhere. If I’m sitting at a stop light and suddenly remember something else I need to do – I whip out that calendar and add it to my weeks to do list. What a relief to write it down. Otherwise, I tell myself “Ok, I can’t forget this …” because inevitably I will.
The best part?! Pulling out the black marker (black and bold) to cross out something when I FINISH it! Oh it feels so good. Its a little overwhelming when I start the week with a fresh sheet and think of all the things that need to get done that week. But it is well worth pulling out the black marker and declaring ‘DONE!’ 🙂
A little secret … Sometimes I even write things on my ‘To-Do list’ … already accomplished… just so that I can pull out my favorite black-marker and cross it right off! 🙂
