Organization, And The Power Of The To-Do List

Organization is something some people have mastered, and some people, well don’t. I’m an in-betweener. Once Mr. B. starts calling, texting, or my favorite, e-mailing me with a laundry list of things to do, I quickly revert to my Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead line. “I’m right on top of that, honey!” Only to realize a week later, that e-mail he sent still sits in my inbox unopened and unfulfilled. Eek! (Eagerly holds hands out for Wife Of The Year trophy!)

I believe I might be a little ADD, or ADHD, or OCD, or all the ends in D words that mean you have a hard time concentrating on one task at a time, or you just get fixated on one freaking thing, and you can’t move on. (Raises hand.) Guilty.  It’s a flipping miracle I’ve completed one manuscript much less seven now, (really ten if you count the ones the public will probably never see), but who’s counting, right?

Wait, what was I talking about?

Oh! Organization. Yes, and the power of the To-Do list. Untitled design-11If you’re like me, busy with children, and a husband, and a big hairy dog, and editors e-mailing you telling you to get your butt in gear, then you might need the power and the help of a To-Do list. Even if you’re not like me, start writing a To-Do list. Every night before you go to bed, jot down all the stuff you know you need to get done the next day. List them in order from top priority to not so top priority, and then let it go. Breathe, and focus on reading a good book before you go to sleep because you don’t have to remember everything anymore.

If you want to put it in your phone, that’s great. But, know, there is something therapeutic about taking pen/pencil to paper and writing down your To-Do’s, then when one is accomplished, taking that same writing utensil and marking it out. I mean really get in there and scribble it out real good. Take that you stupid three weeks of ironing!  But, keep in mind, you actually have to do the task before you can scribble it out. I know, bummer of all bummers, right?

You can do it. I believe in you!
