I am big on lists.
I make a list at home for groceries, chores and random things that just need to get done. Partially as a reminder to my husband who takes no notice of things unless I literally spell it out for him and partially because I enjoy crossing things off the list.
I like to know that something is done. I like to see that I have confirmed that it is done when I have crossed it off.
Most of the time, the to-do list has no value to anyone but me. The things that I find 'very' important, are probably not even worthy of going on someone else's list. Not even a blip on their radar.
I do not like to procrastinate, I like to get the thing done and know that it is done and then I can relax.
There is always a point in the school year when the to-do list is so long that as quickly as I can cross one thing off, three things take its place.
There is always another point in the school year, when the days are winding down and all the plans are made. The to-do list is actually shorter because I planned ahead, anticipating the to-do lists in the future and not wanting to procrastinate, already did all of the things.
This window of time is always short, but I enjoy it immensely.
I'm not there yet, but I am looking forward to the 'down hill' slide. The to-do list at the end of all of the other to-do lists.
Yesterday I posted about how messy my closet is....I worked on it for a while after school. You can't tell that I have made much progress, but I actually have and I this is how it looks now:
