I have finally discovered the key to productive weekends! The secret is in the list.
I’ve always been a list person. At any given moment you can find at least half a dozen lists in the bottom of my purse (alongside an expired, flavored condom.. which I’m still not entirely sure how it got there).
At the beginning of every weekend I write out my giant ‘to do’ list. Typically I look at the list and find it so intimidating that I choose to take a nap instead. This weekend, however, I decided to add some items to the list that I knew I’d get done. Every once in a while I need to feel that sense of accomplishment when I cross something off the list.
