The power of priortizing


I always have a regret at the end of each day for not utilizing the day well enough. I’ve decided to live in the present and not concern myself with my past or future. This sure is a tough thing to do but with a concentrated effort and dedication anything is possible. If we focus on living in the present, every day becomes special and important. Earlier I used to live my life waiting for few special days and filling up the space in between by just existing and not living. I don’t wish to do that anymore. I want to live my life more with each passing day. I want to make every day of my life special than few momentous days.

To do that, I need to prioritize my days well. Every Friday I’m elated to spend the weekend doing everything that would make me happy. However, I end up spending half my day on the couch doing absolutely nothing. That’s not how I wish to spend the days of my life. One way to make sure I make everyday worthwhile is by prioritizing my tasks for each day. That way, I have something to look forward to each day. We were taught to prepare to do lists and timetables for our studies in school. I used to enjoy the process of making time tables, however, I’ve never been able to follow them throughout. I have a tendency to go overboard with my timetables and pack in a lot of tasks on a single day with the intention of being productive. No points in guessing that the excess tasks used to overwhelm me and I ended up procrastinating on all of them.

What I wish to do now is to make realistic to do lists. It’s okay if they have just 2/3 tasks for the day but I wish to jot them down and review them at the end of each day. This would ensure that I’m living my life rather than existing as I’ll have a written record of my life. I’ll try my level best to do this starting tomorrow, wish me luck!
