Each morning I write a list of things I want to achieve in the day, it is called a "to do" list, simply because they are things I want to do.
Not everyone does it, but it helps me to stay focussed.
I sometimes also write a long term to do list. On this list I write long term objectives, this includes things that take much longer to achieve. An example of what I once wrote on the long term list was to visit Egypt. Of course, it is impossible to decide in the morning then accomplish something like that before night-fall, so it is long term for that reason. It took planning, saving and lots of other things to achieve it.
Each morning I look at my long term list (which is often broken down into smaller steps) and see if there is something small that I can do in one day to help me achieve the long term goal. For example, it is easy enough to arrange travel insurance in just one day. Then I add those easy-to-achieve steps onto my daily to do list.
I often write down my dreams and ambitions and they are often broken down into tiny steps or stages. If ever I am bored I will think about what I want to achieve in my life and then put steps in place to ensure I realise them.
Today's list includes the following:
Can you guess which items I can achieve in one day and which ones would have to go onto my Long Term To Do list?
