Check it out

I would like to challenge you to make a list this week.  I am a list junky. Record all the tasks you might have onto a sheet with four quadrants.  Write "priority important" in the top left quadrant.  Next to it write "priority, not important".  In the bottom left place "not priority, important" and "not priority, not important in the last section.  Try to complete as many of the priority tasks as possible.  To treat yourself you can complete one of the "fluffy" tasks in the bottom right corner. I use one of these sheets for my whole week at work.  I cross them off and depending on the day, I highlight them with a different colour. It helps alleviate all those floating tasks swimming through my brain and it helps me see that I am doing a good job even if I feel I haven't accomplished much that day. I would like to hear how your list making goes.


  1. I have to make lists or else I would forget my own name half the time :)

    1. I knew you would be a list person...

  2. Ahhh the list addiction! I am a list obsesser!

    My coworkers used to actually make fun of me for the amount of multi-coloured sticky notes with lists on them that I always used to have covering my entire office (the walls and all). Now I keep them strictly in my notebooks. There is so much satisfaction from getting to draw a line through completed tasks!

    I have never done a list with priority sorting though and I really like the sounds of that. I am going to give it a try!

    Thanks Vanessa!
