Here’s my challenge. If you can’t wake up every day and, using your 100% original equipment God-given organic brain, come up with the three most important things you need to do that day – then you should seriously work on fixing that. I don’t mean install another app, or read more productivity blogs and books. You have to figure out what’s important to you and what motivates you; ask yourself why that stuff isn’t gnawing at you enough to make you get it done. Fix that.
I had been looking for a way to express a similar idea. That being, increasingly, my to do list is full of the things I park there that otherwise get in the way of what I’m actively focused on. It’s less a “to do” list and more of a “to don’t” list. I park them there because, for the moment, I do want to forget them.
