Now I've written in a previous post about how useful it is for me to itemise my chores on Outlook on my phone and how much pleasure I get from simply ticking a box when I've completed a task. As I've been ultra-busy lately I'd been omitting the recording part and just doing the crossing off in the misguided belief that the reduced number of items on the list would make me feel better. Not so, instead I was just confused and panicky because I'd forgotten half of the things that I'd needed to do.
So yesterday I pulled myself together and took a deep breath. I sat down and quantified everything that I thought should have been included. Throughout the day I added things that I'd missed the first time around. And surprise, surprise the tally shot up to an alarming figure but the funny thing is that now I've got the full picture recorded I'm able to stop worrying and tick them off faster!
