A previous boss insisted we have productive days so he gave us a sheet of paper on which he had headings. He asked us to list three things we wanted to accomplish on a given day, and one thing we would break up over the many days of a month.
At the end of any week, we had accomplished 21 things and at month end, a major project had been finished.
By Lynn from Bridgeville
Eighteen months ago I lost my husband of 42 years of marriage.
Ever since, My three sons and one daughter have been wonderful about making sure that things are getting done around my house.
They are always reminding me to use one of those magnetic chore pads that stick to my refrigerator and as I see a light bulb out, or a chirping smoke detector, a leaky faucet, etc. I write it down on the pad! And each of my children takes turns coming up each Saturday to go over the list. Even if there is nothing on my list, it turns out to be a date day out. They take me food shopping, pharmacy shopping, out for a wonderful lunch, and so much more. And the best part is the grandchildren that come with them.
Over the course of a weekend, I always get to see all eleven grandchildren anyway! "Life doesn't get better than Grandchildren." They are Nana's medicine for her broken heart! :) - One proud happy Nana.
The "Flash List". This is a game I made up to get five things done really quick. Start by cutting up small pieces of any kind of scrap paper, keep them in a small box on the edge of your desk.
Ever wonder why you can't finish a list before another comes up? Well, I did too. I made a list to "do by" and divided it up into the areas that govern my life.
