Marian gave me a notepad last year. I keep it by my desk. It is the perfect pad for note writing. Long and narrow with a spiral binding, I can stand it up or lay it down â€” no matter. What matters is that when I think of an important to-do or thought that could use some attention, I write it down on the pad. When I complete the chore, I check it off with glee. When one sheet is full – I turn the page and start another list with the days pressing matters.
Every once in a while I turn a few pages back and see all the stuff I didnâ€™t do.
Iâ€™m sure there is a 10 most helpful list somewhere out there for savvy business people, that says bringing forward your to-do lists from yesterday into today is pretty important. Iâ€™m not savvy.
On my list of things to do today, is to go through the notes from last year. as we close up 2013 I want to bring forth any items or ideas I forgot about by turning the page.
Perhaps as I look back and look again, I will take some action, or beg your forgiveness for not calling you back, or check out the book someone recommend I read. Maybe I will be reminded of that next big fat idea that could change the world.
Then again, since I havenâ€™t looked back and life goes on, I have to wonder how important is anything.
We shall seeâ€¦ we shall see.
