Most people have a to do list somewhere. Maybe it’s it’s their own. Maybe it’s for their kids or even a spouse. I probably have many to do lists in a given day.
The must do’s
The I don’t want to do’s
The to do eventually
The to do’s that I never do
And some days I have the ta da’s!
Ta da, I survived a another day!
Ta da, I accomplished something today!
Ta da, I took care of a personal errand today!
Ta da, I made lunch today!
Ta da, I talked to my friend today!
What I have come to realize: I have more ta das to celebrate than to dos off the pending task list. Could this have anything to do with me? Why of course it does. I choose where I focus. I choose the wants tos far more than the need tos. Sad but true.
Some days this can be depleting. While other days it’s therapy. Today I read more and blogged more. I also bought some new notebooks to write my to do and ta da list in. I might have even color coded the books: pure nerd alert right here.
Ta da, I just finished this post. A thought post at that. Are you more a ta da or to do type of person? Do you blow off some tasks just because you want to even though you know you shouldn’t?
