Organizing the To Do List
Yesterday I sorted all my thoughts for the week to come and I compiled a big To Do list. It was a list full of small tasks, most of which would only take me a couple of minutes to complete. The hard part was that these tasks were scattered across eight or nine different life roles. I had tasks for mother, business manager, shipper, writer, publicist, chauffeur, housekeeper, cook, gardener, exterminator, and a host of other roles. Sadly the process of switching from mother brain to marketing brain requires me to fold away one set of thoughts and pull out a different one. This means that even though I have to make quick phone calls in both roles, I have trouble grouping them together without getting distracted in the middle. One a good day, I can. Today was less focused than good. However I’ve accomplished enough so that tomorrow does not feel quite so overwhelming. I much prefer several large tasks to dozens of small ones.
