To-do? or to-be?

without comments

Aren’t you impressed by how “deep” that title is?

“Do you have a never-ending list? Do you manage your time? Do you manage minutes, tasks, and lists? Do you start each day with a list that has more on it at the end of the day than it did at the beginning of the day, in spite of how many items are completed and crossed off?

Or do you manage your attention? Do you manage emotions, intention, and make choices about what will and will not get done? What are your favorite ways to do this?”

[From Linda Stone: Is it Time to Retire the Never-Ending List? - Living on The Huffington Post]

I have a day job which requires quite a bit of intent and attention, wife and kids that require the same, and I inexplicably get myself involved in a plethora of other projects (all of which take time and attention). Part of the problem is fighting a sense of urgency about any/all of them (the kids aren’t getting younger, the day job must get done, if I’m going to write books before I die I must get started, etc).
