31 Days of Finishing – Day 5: Sometimes the Best Way to Finish Well is to Take Break
This work week has been especially hectic. And my personal life has been especially hectic because my adult daughter is staying with me while she recovers from a concussion. Add to the mix that Sunday is my busiest day of the week (I work at a church). So today after getting home later than normal (I am cat sitting), going to the Bay Area (Follow up dr appt for daughter), and then shopping and preparing dinner for my daughter-in-love and grand-daughter, I didn’t want to do anything on the to-do list.
And you know what I did – nothing on the to-do list. My daughter and I took a lovely walk along with the breeze and other walkers.
Tomorrow I will be back at the list.
Moral of the Story? Sometimes you need to take a break from the to-do list. I needed grace and time-off today more than I needed to tackle an item on THE car to-do list. It is an okay thing to do, even if you’ve only been following it for 5 days.
During this month of October I am joining LOTS of bloggers hosted by The Nester who will be writing every day about a topic. My topic is about finishing. I will spend 31 minutes each day on a to-do item (from the secondary list).
I will write about it and share any productivity tips I find helpful to FINISHING things.

Your Turn . . . Do you take breaks from your to-do list? Why and when?
