2. Call brother
relook at library budget line items
Practicum student arrives today
5.Check out new magazines
This is a question I ask myself nearly everyday. I hardly ever get my entire list done and then everything I didn't get done today gets automatically added to the beginning (or sometimes end) of tomorrow's list. I feel this constant surge of never quite measuring up. I have to have just one or two things on my list that are TOP PRIORITY-those I get done (on a good day) and the rest-ho hum. But then what happens when late in the day you realize that one of your low priority items really should have been a TOP.
Like today when it dawned on me that my Scholastic Book Fair begins next week and I have yet to get up any of the posters or ready the flyers for students to carry home. Am I crazy? How do I let these things slip through the cracks? I knew the book fair was during conferences and I knew conferences were coming up but next week?? How is February ending so soon? I did find a cool list making tool online while freaking about my own to-do list. Check it out here: http://tadalist.com/?ref=public
Want to view my to-do list for today (notice book fair publicity isn't even on the list!!":
I did get two baskets of laundry folded (not on the list), I did call Barb for her birthday and talked until my phone died (should have had "charge phone" on the list), and I did spend quality time with Groovy Girl while she did 3 homework projects. Also I poked my nose into one of my new magazines (Eating Well) while she was doing her homework. I found about 10 recipes I wanted to make and several articles worthy of blog posts but I now go to bed without calling Julie and no yoga. I did text my brother but that doesn't really count. All I can hope for is a better finish tomorrow. My plan is to focus and spend 5 minutes in the morning right when I get to school (or maybe at home as I eat my breakfast) and prioritize my list with my date book next to me. I'll add that item to my list!
Are you a list maker?
