I like to make lists. Some better than others. Grocery lists are a chore; shopping lists for fabric and quilt supplies are a pure joy. Having a list helps me focus on what I need to do. Sadly, I have gotten out of the habit of making lists routinely. I just carry around all my to do's and planning lists in my head. I have a spiral calendar that I carry around and jot notes in, but haven't really made lists. After all, who has time to sit around and make lists?
I've always been good at multi-tasking at work. I can juggle multiple tasks, prioritizing each one and working through each in an organized way. No problem. But for some reason I've lost total control of multi-tasking in my personal life. It has been a downward spiral recently. Big problem. The solution, I've decided is that I need to start making lists again. Seeing the task written down reminds me of what I need to do, either that day, during the week, or in the coming month. Making the list helps me focus and set priorities. Just a simple thing, a list.
But wait, there's more. How many lists have I made today? Uh-oh, I think I need a list of the lists!
