A Long To-Do List

Choosing Important Work

Eventually we have to face the reality of a to-do list.

The longer it is, the more we’re hiding.

A long to-do list keeps us busy, spreads our time and energy thin, stretches us so we can’t fully commit to the work that matters.

Equally as distracting as a long to-do list is the mindset of, “If I can crank through a bunch of these tasks, then I can focus on the big ones once the list is smaller.”

More challenging (and valuable) is to remove items from the list altogether.
