My day revolves around what’s on my to-do list. It helps to keep me productive. But to-do lists have a problem. They get bloated. You end up with all sorts of stuff on there that isn’t that important.
It’s important to edit your to-do lists.
Remove the things that aren’t important.
Focus on the things that are.
You won’t have a long list of completed to-do items at the end of the day, and that’s fine. Don’t judge yourself by the amount of ‘stuff’ you get done today, but by the quality of the work you decide is most important.
