I've been thinking about NLP:RD and NMRLP:RD and why I'm just not feeling it anymore.
I've also been toodling around online and somewhere I saw that a to-do list shouldn't have more than 2 things on it.
Now this totally contradicts my own list theory, where one lists everything one can possibly think of, taking as much time to make the lists and to re-categorize the lists and organize the lists as humanly possible, in order to avoid actually doing anything on the list.
As much fun as this is, it is entirely ineffective.
SO, the new NLP:RD is to do 2 things per day.
That's it, two things. And two things that suck on Wednesdays, because Work It Out Wednesday was pretty effective.
So same amount of drinking, 2 things accomplished per day, 2 suckier things accomplished on Wednesday, whatever counts, no guilt as long as you can say you've accomplished 2 things.
I really like this idea. I will not be giving up my crazy lists, as ineffective as they are. They bring me great comfort and joy, but will be considered more of a recreational hobby than an actual plan to accomplish stuff.
Okay, who's with me? What two things are you doing today?
1. Order enlargements (I know, still not done. You don't even want to know.)
2. Editing last client shoot.
It's really hard to keep it to two things. I will admit I have a whole page devoted to lists on my netvibes thing. But it's just TODAY, THIS WEEK, SOON, ONE DAY (that last one is more of a life's list of things to do that I'm working on now, fun stuff).
I'll just have the top two things in the TODAY list be my "MUST DO"s and then the rest is all bonus stuff that I'll feel really proud of accomplishing. Above and beyond sort of stuff. Suggestions for the use of the rest of my time. No guilt though.
This should work, right? It's fool proof. And cheater proof. Or actually cheater friendly which I guess is more my style.
So I spent most of my morning working on my new NLP:2TPD and the organization of said plan...this is time well spent, right?
