What do you do when there's too much to do? What do you do when you're overwhelmed? What do you do when you don't know what to do first? What do you do when you find yourself overly discouraged by your inability to get anything done?
WRITE. A. LIST.
Or for the millennials...type. a. list.
Of every task. Of every responsibility. Of every objective.
Write a list of everything that needs to get done.
This list will take the abstract and make it actual. This list will turn your frustration into focus. This list will help you to identify the necessary from the unnecessary. This list will help you to determine what must be done by you and what can be delegated. This list will reveal what is urgent and what can wait.
This list is a key to let you out of your prison of laziness. This list is an antidote for your sickness of apathy. This list is a life preserver to save you from drowning in a sea of neglect. (You may think that's a little strong, but anyone who has been unproductive for any length of time knows the feeling.)
This list will be the initial step that you take towards a life of greater self-leadership. This list will be the visual representation of all that you must accomplish. This list will be the physical evidence that you are moving in the right direction.
Write this list. Today.
A higher experience of focus and productivity await you.
