Quoting: “To Do With Joy” List

People who get things done make “to do” lists. Considering it important to take action on your “to do” list leads to taking care of things. When you create a “to do” list, label it “to do with joy.”

When you explicitly write that it is a “to do with joy” list, you are giving yourself a valuable message: You are telling your mind to remember to be joyful.

A person might feel rushed to do all the things on the “to do” list. A person might feel a little resentful or overwhelmed that he or she has so many things to do. But when you call your list a “to do with joy list,” you are preparing yourself to feel good while you do the things that you want to do.

-from Rabbi Zelig Pliskin’s book: “Taking Action” – page 72

  1. Somehow I was never able to convince Joy that she really ought to help me with my “to-do” list tasks. She insisted that they were *my* chores and that I had to do them myself. [:)]
