    Got up early and sat with my coffee and journal. Listed today’s tasks, the month’s priorities, and out it all in order. I feel like I got extra time as a result!

    What do yoi do to keep focused?

    “Sub-lists” to go along with my main items. For instance, “get X and Y from Dollar Store; go to post office; get cash out of atm”. I’d get so focused on my main goal, like meeting the a/c installer at our new homesite today, that I’d pass up all the other places without a reminder note. The sub-list is usually just on scrap paper. That’s just how I have to do things. Getting older, lol.

    I keep two lists of tasks. One for crappy weather days and one for nice weather. The nice weather list usually gets priority because I can do the other list anytime.

    Like today is rainy so I’ll be working on indoor tasks like cleaning and insulation installation.

      Love the weather split lists. I can’t make biochar in the rain and I hate sewing on nice days. There is still NO good day to string trim the pond banks😂

    2 do list and work the list out of order, work comes first, family (home) and animals. A lot is in a order, but changes and things come to the list.

    Like a new order, feed, cages rabbits, and the rabbits.
