I started off the week a little on edge. I was looking at all the items on my To-Do List.
It's easy to get caught up in the To-Do List. It feels good to check things off as well.
The thing about the To-Do List is that it's never ending. There will always be more things to do.
It's a vicious cycle. We get stressed about all the stuff "need" to do so we start getting things done without a plan. We check the boxes and scratch things off. The more checkmarks, the better we feel.
Then the list grows again and we start over.
We check off the easy items and forget about the important items.
There's one word that changes everything.
Why am I doing what I'm doing? What's my purpose? What's my intention?
All of a sudden my focus shifts from what to why and then to how. The stress and overwhelm disappears.
