To do lists are perfect for a control freak like me. The more in control I feel the less I suffer from anxiety although I do realise that there will always be things that will be out of my control and well sometimes you’ve just got to go with the flow.
However for things that I can control this is where my to do lists come into play. I have lists for everything. The reason for this is that I love the feeling of achievement and accomplishment when I am able to tick something off my list as completed. It does not matter how big or small the task. I put a deadline date next to goal and work towards that. Works every time. It’s interesting to note that one of the first things I told the young girl that I mentor on weekends is to create a list and I must proudly say she is steadily working through her lists and ticking things off as we go along.
I always thought it’s a good idea for a goal oriented person to have lists so that you know exactly what it is you need to do to attain your dreams and hearts desires. That’s just me I guess.
