I love checklists.

I more than love them.  I live by them.  I breathe by them, at least during times when I want and expect to get things done.  Trying to get things accomplished without a checklist is, for me, like spinning tires in the mud trying to get the truck out of a ditch.  Feels like a lot of work, but nothing is actually getting done.

I have two checklists, one for my writing and publishing, and one for all the things going on at home that do not relate to writing and publishing.

This weekend, I was able to check off a couple of items from the writing and publishing checklist.  But yesterday, Monday, I completed very little in the writing department of my life; because I was busy accomplishing things on my other checklist.

It was a good feeling, and things in the other world need to get done from time to time too.  And there are still things that must get accomplished this week.  But I hope to be back to the writing world for the rest of this week.

    Definitely a big fan of lists. Helps me keep focused through the week.

    Check lists do keep one focused. It also is self rewarding if you manage to knock a few items off your list.
