31 Days of Finishing – Day 17: Advance Your Dreams
Agree or disagree? “All work and no play make Jack a dull boy.”
It might not make him a dull boy, but I sure bet that Jack lacks motivation to complete his secondary to-do list. Because face it, our main to-do’s are NEVER done and often drain us of energy. Our secondary to-do’s don’t contribute to SUCCESS, but these can contribute to the fun, mystery, and meaningfulness of life.
And I think that spending time on our DREAMS list also energizes our actions, mood, and thinking.
Today I made up a DREAMS 2014 list by looking at Buckets Lists I’ve written and posted here. Some dreams are not on my bucket lists, but are always on my mind. I.e. “Buy a tiny house” and “Learn to speak Spanish fluently.”
Moral of the story? I always feel energized and proud of myself when I spend time doing a “dream” item. Awhile ago I was memorizing The Lord’s Prayer in Spanish. I am going to spend time today doing that. And then I will attack the table piles!
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 have a DREAMS list? How often do you do something from that list? Why not today?
- How are you doing on your own to-do lists?
