Why To Do Lists Suck and What To Do Instead

Table of Contents

I have a feeling, that if you’re reading this, you love to get things done. You don’t wait around for things to happen, and if you’re anything like me, you have what seems like a never-ending “to-do” list. Go to the grocery store, get to the gym, make dinner, send out e-mails, the list just goes on and on.

However, I think to-do lists suck.  And always find myself looking at my list at the end of the day frustrated because I didn’t get everything done.  It’s annoying and a little defeating. And that’s lame and doesn’t feel good. So, I’ve come up with a new way to look at “to-do” lists that have helped me TREMENDOUSLY and have increased my productivity and confidence.

And the best part of it all, is that I made a quick video of it for you! I don’t make a lot of videos, but I really wanted to share this with you.  Once you watch it, leave me a comment below, and let me know what you think.

      1. I was there from 6:`15ishPM to about 11PM and then took the bus home myself, I live right outside the city though! We definitely need to plan a meet up…. really I should just pick a weekend and head up there to visit you and Rog and the crew.

        Life is good! I can’t complain! Gym gains, happiness gains, friendship gains. ALL KINDS OF GAINS! How are things on your end?

  1. Sounds interesting, Sirena. At this time of the year, I’m drowning in “to-do” lists and feeling overwhelmed at having to produce a good Christmas for my family, whiles fitting in my disabled daughter’s routine plus family routine too, ensuring I have enough meds, feed & supplies for disabled d and fulfilling everyone else’s expectations of me! B-L-A-H!
    Tomorrow is hubby’s birthday and I’m off to write my “did do” list so that I can enjoy and be fully present to celebrate his birthday – not stressing about the mountain I have to climb before 25th December! i’ll report back… xxx

    1. Hi Kirsty,

      Thank you for your comment. Girl, let’s get you to take a moment to breath! This is precisely why I say screw your to-do lists because as you put it, you have a mountain to climb!

      I don’t doubt that you will get all of your things done, just don’t forget to come up for some air 🙂

      Hope you have a great bday celebration with your husband, and I look forward to hearing your progress lady!


      1. Well it all went according to plan with my “did do” list, and I really feel I appreciated the day much more, not being burdened by my “to do” list, and hubby had a good day – I ticked all the birthday boxes 😉 (Pistachio Chocolate Cake is gorgeous btw & not much sugar!). The “did do” list helped me focus on what I would want to remember. Then looking back on the day, instead of feeling I had not achieved anything, I felt I had achieved what was important to me. I’m a bit worried about missing some important things I have to do, so I’m writing ahead to incorporate essentials into my “did do” list. Thanks Sirena 🙂

        1. Hi Kirsty,

          Great to hear from you again. That is fantastic that this worked for you! The fact that you felt like you achieved something is huge, and that you were able to focus on the things that were most important to you. Kudos my friend 🙂

          On a side note, I want to hear more about this cake! Recipe? 🙂
