Today, my solo cup is filled with checkmarks.
I am a list maker! Sometimes they are mental lists or written so poorly that I have to stare and think hard about what I wrote, or use a process of elimination based on other items and play a memory game with myself to decipher. Nonetheless, the thought process is (was) intact.
Today was an amazing list checking day. Because we are leaving for vacation tomorrow (yahoo-yippee-hooray), there were many checkmarks delivered this day. From social media scheduling to picking up dry cleaning and deciding what to wear on the plane; it’s always a good day when you have boxes checked in my book.
I’ve noticed that I use lists (pen & paper) more now since I am on my own in the office and solely responsible for ensuring all is complete. I honestly prefer pen and paper because I am on an electronic device most of the day and there is something about crossing through a line item or placing a handwritten checkmark next to a box that does it for me. Let's not forget the follow up of crumbling the paper into a ball and throwing it in the trash can (to be added to the recycle bin, of course). Not to mention I think we all could use the practice since handwriting is on its way out the door. However, maybe this is because I have yet to discover that latest and greatest list making - checkmark insertion app that will scare my pens back into their drawer. Until then, I'll keep my pens in business.
As I approach the last sentence of my daily post, my hand is already twitching in anticipation of another task to set free - check.
Oh yeah, one last thing on my list that I almost forgot - Happy Cinco de Mayo. Don't eat the worm!
Q: Do you still use pen and paper to write your lists? If not, what do you use to manage your tasks? I am eager to hear from others that may have discovered something new that I don't yet know about. Please share.
