Taming The To-Do List – Book Review
Are you the kind of gal who loves to make To Do Lists? Do you get a keen sense of satisfaction out of checking little boxes that indicate you’ve accomplished something meaningful?
Do you also find yourself becoming increasingly overwhelmed by the number of tasks remaining on your list at the end of each day?
Does the tendency to accomplish something – anything – sometimes lead you to focus on doing the little things – the minor things – while the really important things sit and linger on your list?
If you find yourself putting off the really important things in life to deal with the less pressing things that are vying for your attention in the moment, then Taming The To-Do List – How To Choose Your Best Work Every Day by Glynnis Whitwer needs to make its way to the top of your reading list!
Taming The To-Do List explores the role that procrastination plays in our lives.
Glynnis explores the reasons we procrastinate – the price we pay for procrastinating – and how to move from a place of procrastination to a place of productivity.
She also explores the role that fear, perfectionism and busyness play in our procrastination, and shows how even small changes can have a big impact in our ability to get things done. At the end of each chapter, she includes a Practical Application exercise that allows us to put what we’ve learned into action.
Psalm 90:12 says:
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
In Taming The To-Do List, Glynnis Whitwer shows us how to do just that.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
