Fellow SparkFriend KASEYCOFF has inspired me! I've always been a relatively organized person, and could list you the advantages and disadvantages of just about any organizing system by glancing at it. I have an ongoing "to do" list, and a daily one. However, one thing that always irked me about my daily "to do" list was reviewing it at the end of the day and reminding myself how much I had not accomplished. Somehow, those items not checked off just seem to garner more of my attention than those that are checked off. And I used to review my "to do" at the end of the day to plan my next day.
Kasey suggests a list of accomplishments instead, to appreciate what you actually have done. Now why have I never thought of that? So I'll be combining them (because I just can't let go of that "to do" list cold turkey!). I'll have a "to do" in the morning, and an "Accomplishments" in the evening, and only look at my "to do" to review and do a new one the next day. Accomplishments will be held close to my heart forever LOL! I'm also going to be trying BOGUSANNIE's WooHoo jar idea. At this rate, I'll have a lot of concrete reminders of my successes!
Thanks Kasey and Annie!!!
