2017 has been a welcome change for how I looked at my task list. A lot of this has to be due to choosing to do focused work.
Until last year I would work on the weekends, trying to catchup on things I missed completing during the week. It’s not that I did not work during the week, its just that with more things being added to my list during the work week, some tasks on the list kept slipping to the bottom.
A change in perspective has helped quite a lot. Rather than look at the tasks which I did not complete in the week, as I plan for the next week, I now look at the tasks I completed during the week. Now I realise why I did not get to some of the tasks.
I could work on the tasks I did not complete during the weekend, but deciding to set boundaries to when I work and the time I spend thinking, writing and with friends and family mean that I now choose to not feel guilty of missing tasks.
