lists




do you make lists? i find that i make a lot of lists. grocery lists, to do list, errand list, reminder list, chore list, etc.

recently though i started another list, and it was to jot down everything i did throughout the day. I did this for a few days to see how i was spending my time. Sometimes I feel like I've gotten nothing accomplished and i 'll think, "what have i been doing all day"?

You should try it for a few days to see exactly all that you get done. i think you'll be surprised that you are doing much more than you thought.

so here is my "things that i did today" list for 7/7/11
