The morning is a great time, before you’ve started on your duties, to outline your top three priorities for the day. Instead of trying to tackle a long to-do list, I cut my list into three sections: top priority, second priority, and third priority. I know for a fact my husband likes his food to be timely, so meals are always number one. Number two is usually something around the house that I’ve been putting off, such as cleaning the tub or vacuuming my bedroom. And number three is typically a personal priority, such as updating this blog, responding to a prayer request, or getting some exercise.
I do this because long to-do lists are extremely intimidating to me, and I find that I’m often too lost on where to start that I just don’t choose anything on the list and just wing it, hoping that I hit something on the way. I also establish three priorities for the day, because it helps me feel more accomplished when I know that no matter what, I’ve accomplished the three most important tasks for the day, even if I didn’t get to call a girlfriend back or go grocery shopping. Like a way to bypass guilt for not being able to do everything: I know I’ve done my best, and with these 3 things, my family is content and I can rest when it’s time to rest.
