Why is it that we put everything we need to do on our “To Do Lists” whether it needs to be done that day/week or not? As Ruth King at Small Biz Sense so accurately points out, we only set ourselves up for failure, because we get too busy to find time to complete all the things on the list. Then, we feel bad, and don’t accomplish some of the things that should’ve gotten done. I do this to myself all the time.
Better to make your To Do List doable. That doesn’t mean you leave off things you should be doing – like marketing your legal practice. But, be realistic as to what you can and will do in a given day or week. Then, you are more likely to actually do it.
Thanks, Ruth.
