Don’t you just hate to-do lists? No matter how much you attack them or how effectively you manage them, the never, ever seem to go away. My wife and I were working on some master to-do lists last Friday. Mine was two pages long. And many of the items were larger projects that are really composed of their own set of to-do lists.
But that evening I saw a better kind of list. And I found it on the mirror of my 14 year old daughter’s bathroom. Besides making me feel terribly proud, it reminded me the importance of keeping your dreams and objectives in the forefront of your mind. To visualize them (daily if possible). And, minimally, to at least write them down.
I got permission from her to share her list on this blog. I hope it will encourage you to compose your own such list.
Things I would like to do…
To master French
To be well educated
To have a strong sense of hope
To speak clearly
To have read all Jane Austen novels
To have ten completed and perfected songs
To finish ninth grade early
To save money
To have $500 in my bank account
To be sensitive to others
To completely trust in God
To fully believe in God’s power
Memorize quotes, passages, and poems worth knowing
To be strong and healthy
To be efficient and confident
To be proud of myself
