I have a very clever friend who has a more realistic approach to to-do list making. She puts things like ‘do laundry’ and ‘wash dishes’ on her list.
Those are everyday things – ever present, like death and taxes
In fact what Benjamin Franklin should have said is “in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death, taxes and dirty dishes”.
Since they’re inevitable, unavoidable and omnipresent, I shouldn’t need to put them on my list. Right?
Of course, my friend is right. If I put those things on my To Do list I’d probably be more realistic with what I might accomplish in one day.
If I followed her advice, instead of a To Do list that looks like this:
I’d have one that looked like this:
I’d actually cross more stuff off my list at the end of the day.
But that would be too sensible. And I’m me, I believe I’m superwoman. Not only can I do everything on my list, I can do it all without help, I can do it all in one day and still have time to wash dishes, put on 3 loads of washing and mow the lawn!
Yeah! I am SuperZefi!
PS. I’m thinking of having a whole body transplant soon. This one is wearing out on me…
