Do you ever feel like you just never seem to get through your to-do list? Does your lack of ability to check off all the jobs on your list make you feel WEIGHTED DOWN? Kind of like it sits heavily on your shoulders?
Do you ever find yourself feeling guilty that there’s so much work to be done, but yet you can’t seem to bring yourself to get through everything that’s on your list?
You sit staring at your computer screen: which is probably a mix of looking at your Emails and then at your To Do List and then at Facebook and then at your Emails and then at your To Do List… going back and forwards, round and round, sometimes you may even find yourself procrastinating on EVERYTHING.
To do list not done = guilt
Don’t feel motivated to get stuff done = guilt
Really just want to relax and ignore work for a while = guilt
Guilt. Guilt. Guilt.
Can you relate? I speak from personal experience, and whilst I still do find the guilt pushing itself in sometimes (particularly if I’m tired), but it does not rule my life like it used to.
The annoying thing about all of the above is that we put it ON OURSELVES. You have the power to change this.
I don’t know about you, but I just want to have a nice life! To enjoy what I’m doing, to be happy day-to-day going through the tasks. But what I’ve just described above, has the ability to complete destroy this day-to-day enjoyment.
So here’s a fresh perspective for you…
The To Do List will NEVER be done. Embrace it! Embrace the incompletion. And dare I say it… even ENJOY it. The fact there is so much on that list means there are things to aim towards, to achieve, to be satisfied in their results in the FUTURE. Everything being completely done is BORING. So stop trying to RUSH everything.
