Try this as a stress-reduction technique: only one thing on your to-do list each day.
I know it sounds crazy. I’m not suggesting you only do one thing each day. But make yourself a list at the beginning of the day with one item on it that “must” be done.
The thing that, if you only did one thing today, this would be it. Consider anything else you do a bonus.
Now: make your One Thing the first thing.
Trust me – this is a stress-buster that works. It is also a great tool for releasing you from bondage to Insanely Unrealistic To-Do Lists.
