I find a "to-do" list to be a seductive way to "hide" from the "real" work I need to do. What about you?
Too often my to-do list is full of non-essential tasks like "organize my top desk drawer." Just as often, my to-do list is made up of outright distractions or tasks that get done "automatically" and don't require being listed at all.
What helps me move forward in meaningful endeavors is a "must-do" list. This is a one-item list. The one next best small step forward into the change I seek to make. One thing that, when accomplished, will serve as a large lever ratcheting me and my enterprise forward.
Everything else gets put onto my "stop-doing" list and is ignored until my must-do list of one is done.
What's on your must-do list? What will you move to your stop-doing list until what must be done get's done?
Let's keep flying higher together!
