You probably have a few items on your to-do list that have been hanging around for a few weeks or even months.
These items are not pets. There are no prizes for keeping a long list.
What is stopping you from actually making progress? Maybe it’s other higher priority work getting in the way?
But perhaps it’s more subtle than that.
> Do you really know what making progress will mean for those items?
> Are you clear on the next, physical actions?
> Are you scared or intimidated by the task ahead?
> Is there some thinking and definition still left to be done before progress can be made?
Often our lack of thinking or lack of clarity is more of a problem than we’re willing to admit to ourselves. So my invitation to you today is simple: review your lists, think about your thinking and get some clarity.
From such clarity, momentum will emerge. And your list will be a few items lighter.
