It’s a simple thing, really, yet I have to admit it’s the #2 thing that makes me productive. It’s writing things down, five things a day. They are the top five things that I’d like to achieve in a day. If possible I put the hardest thing first. Once that’s out of the way then the rest is easy.
This is the #2 thing. The #1 thing is seeking God. Every morning I ask God for direction for my day. I ask Him to guide my thoughts and my plans. I submit my day to him, and I know that whatever comes my way IS part of his plan. Sometimes it’s not easy. Sometimes nothing on my list gets done. Yet, it’s God’s list that matter’s most, whether it is taking my Grandma to the store or spending time hanging out with my kids.
On other days part of my list gets done, and it’s a great feeling to mark those things off. So at least when I write them down I have a plan. But more important that that, I try to submit to God’s plan. The best one there is.
What about you? How do you get things done? Share with me in the comments below!
