Nearly every day the first thing I do is make a list, review a list or sort out how I’m going to sequence my list. Even on days when I’ve freed myself from the list, I find myself still trying to cram more into the day.
Time is the world’s most precious non-renewable resource, so I try to make the most of it (time after time).
Yet, some days it is better to take a step back from the driver seat and let time just happen to you. Take your foot off the pedal and stop trying to be more productive, stop trying to plan every second, and take a day to relax, or just enjoy.
It can be frustrating when it feels like things are moving slowly, but focus on only one or two things that you care about accomplishing for the day and let the rest go with the flow.
Given my go go go nature, this isn’t an easy ask for me…but in many ways separation from one’s list is healthy and rejuvenating.
For the uber productive, sometimes a break can be the best way to get things done.
Take a slow day!
