It’s Women With Intention Wednesday again… which means focusing on something INTENTIONALLY.
Here’s the definition again:
deliberately, purposely, knowingly**
One thing I find is essential for me: *Intentionally* make a list of all the things I hope to accomplish on any given day (week, month, year)!
I’ve heard there are cases of adults having late onset of attention deficit disorder, and when you combine that with age-related brain fog, it’s very difficult at times to remember things and to truly be productive!
So I’m finding I definitely need to be a “list” person to try to corral all those thoughts overwhelming me and organize or categorize them into some kind of logical order. The more detailed my notes are, the better chance I have of remembering things and getting them done!
Of course, it’s also important to balance expectations about what you can reasonably accomplish in a day’s time, which is something I’m still working on! You really have to allow for those inevitable interruptions or changes in plans. If you are too rigid, you can REALLY stress yourself out!
But overall, I endeavor to accomplish most of the things I purposely and deliberately choose to do each day! For instance, these are some of the things I hope to get done today…
Complete my usual daily or weekly household chores that sometimes don’t get done when I get distracted with other things (for instance, today is laundry day here, and my goal is to wash, dry, AND put away the clothes!)
Start supper in the slow cooker. Planning on chicken and veggies, and chicken always comes out so much juicier when cooked in the slow cooker with broth and seasonings. Saves time, too, because it’s ready when we are ready to eat!
Complete some assigned work for my remote job.
Complete two blog posts (here and over at my other blog, where I also wrote about intentional living), and then share the posts in my blog groups on Facebook .
Related to that will be visiting other blogs and commenting.
So I believe I can intentionally accomplish what’s on my list today – and I’ll work on my list for tomorrow!
So What About YOU?
Are you a “list” person?
Do you find you can be more productive if you have a definite plan for the day?
