Now, what was it I was going to do next?

Posted on Mar 2, 2019

Whether it’s early morning or late at night, after almost 48 years, I may be learning that it’s sometimes better to think, “now, what was it I was going to do next”, without first looking at my to-do list (whether digital or analog), because inevitably, even though “mind like water” and all that DavidCo® stuff, once tasks are written down, my brain wants to leave them there on the paper or the screen. It’s easier and almost always more successful for my motivation-addled self to turn to-do into done when I’m mentally sorting through the list and letting things float to the top. And then when I run out of steam, I go back to the list for what’s next.
