|My first "Did List"|
(That's the kind of perfectionist who still has a couple blood drops on the kitchen floor from cutting herself on a cheese grater on December 29.)
To-do lists don't work for me. They grow and grow, and make me feel more and more defeated when I don't get enough items crossed off them.
I'm sure I'm not the first one to think of this idea--but as I was doing my kitchen chores the other day, the words "Did List" just popped into my head. Interesting! It made me think about all the times my husband has come home from work and asked, "so, what did you do today?" and I would answer truthfully, "I don't remember," even though I'd be exhausted and spent from whatever I had done all day. The "Did List" would be a concrete reminder of the day's accomplishments, and hell, it might even motivate me to get more done in order to make the list longer, right?
So, I've been keeping a "Did List" every day for a week now, and I have to admit, it is a motivator for me. Fellow perfectionists, give it a try!
