Create A #To-Do List Based Around Your #Values

Today’s Challenge: Create a #to-do list based around your #values.

1. Take a look at your master to-do list.

  • If it’s like mine, it’s overwhelming

2. On a seperate sheet, write down your values.

  • Family and Friends
  • Shorty, my dog
  • Fitness
  • Career, Writing and Art
  • Love, Romance
  • Home, Clean and Organized
  • Time to myself (Yup, I’m an introvert)

3. Write down and underline each of your values as a page title.

  • I’ll have 7 pages

4. Transfer each to-do task to the proper value title page.

  • For example:

CAREER, WRITING AND ART

  • Buy paint
  • Take pics of finished art
  • Attach hanging wires
  • Decide which pieces will go in coffee shop
  • Etc.

5. Everyday make a new, short to-do list pulling the most important task(s) from each value page.

  • For example:

TODAY

  • 30 minutes treadmill 
  • Clean up house and load of laundry
  • Buy paint
  • Fix Amazon link and author page
  • Take shorty for a long walk
  • Return family/friends phone calls and texts
  • Etc.

Watch your task lists shrink and become manageable and even enjoyable because you’re staying true to your values. You’re saying YES to everything that is important to you.
