One e-mail I kept to read was a very recent edition of Christine Kane's "Live Creative" e-zine. The featured article, How to Create a Powerful Morning Ritual, included some great suggestions. (Part of my fondness for Christine's e-zine is that her featured article is always done as a list. Yay for lists!) One in particular lit a little light bulb up in the space where my little voice resides. "Be Prepared: Create a Not-to-Do List." Christine's suggestion here is specifically aimed at your morning ritual, but I loved the idea of a Not-to-Do List on a grander scale. So, for example, my list for today . . .
Not To Do:
Let the rainy afternoon go by without spending a while on the glider on the patio.
Give in and eat meat because I feel guilty that the hubby cooked it.
(I haven't eaten meat for over a week and want to continue that way. I've bought
and prepared foods for both of us - with meat for him and without for me.)
Leave the laundry for one more day. It will bug me more tomorrow.
So here's my new note pad.
What will you put on your list?
