Are you one of those people who writes out a list of things they need to get done, and then crosses it off as the things get done? Other than for errands like food shopping, I encourage you to abandon the list. First: because your will never complete it, the list consciously and subconsciously adds stress to your life. Second, if you were able to write it in the first place, your mind already knows the list. Your subconscious mind has the list memorized already so why waste time (and paper). And last, "the list" focuses on the things you have not yet done. Try it as an experiment; get rid of "the list." You will find that: you decrease stress in your life; your mind already knows what needs doing (and you still get everything done) and, instead of focusing on what you have not yet done, you focus on what you have accomplished!
