Labor Day Lists

by Laicie

good advice

I have always been, and will always be, a list maker.

It’s compulsive.

My little notes app on my iPhone is full of them… with duplicates and additions in my Things organizer and my task list in gmail (as I write this I am ever more aware of the need to consolidate).

But with this wedding upcoming, I fear lists may be taking over my life… just a little.

It’s August. This is supposed to be my time to catch up… but no such luck.

It’s like they’re waiting for me around every corner, ready to pounce… with a million little unchecked items.

And they are ever. expanding.

So my goal for the rest of this month is to keep up with my lists. Not eliminate, just keep up… because that, my friend, is a whole task of its own.

I’m looking to check a few big ticket items off by Labor Day, and I’m looking to be satisfied when I do… because sometimes, you just can’t shoot for it all… you have to be able to find happiness in enough.

In fact, maybe I should try to find happiness in enough a little more often.

How about you? Do you keep lists?  And how do you keep it all in line if you don’t?
