Recognise Small Successes

Everyone has ‘To Do’ lists, and for some of us they are necessity.  As a new Mom, I am finding that my ‘To Do’ list keeps getting longer and longer and very rarely has many items crossed off of it.  This leaves me feeling as if nothing ever gets done in the house, although I know that I have done something that day.

What I am proposing to myself is an ‘Accomplishment’ list.  I am going to put it next to my ‘To Do’ list and then write down the items I have done as well as cross them off my ‘To Do’.  I am thinking that by listing what I have accomplished that day it might make me feel like a better housewife and Mom.  As if I am accomplishing things in my new job, and not always being backed up with thing I feel should be done.

And perhaps it will also show me where I am going wrong with the things I am choosing to do.  It might get me a step closer to having more done and feeling like I am spending an equal amount of time with my Daughter as well as keeping up house.  Which in turn might lead to my not feeling like lead at the end of the day.  Every day.

Wish me luck!

  1. Good Luck! What I do is just keep my old “To Do” lists with the stuff crossed off. It serves two purposes: 1) it shows me what I have accomplished and 2) it makes an excellent resource for fuiure lists, or when I find myself with a little bit of time on my hands.
