Motivational Monday #65 - When Your To Do List is Bigger Than You

This morning I wrote down my to do list.  Usually I love lists, but I had been dreading this list for days.  What I was afraid of turned out to be true...the list is bigger than I am!  It is HUGE!  There are so many good, worthy, needful, urgent and important items on the list that nothing can really go away.

And that makes me sad.

Very sad.

I was hoping for a short list.  An itty bitty teeny list.  A list that would be quickly swept under the carpet and finished off.

No such luck.

So what to do....hmmm.  I think I will start by refusing to buy groceries, I mean really, who needs to eat anyways?  From there, I think I will stop washing clothes.  I'm not a fan of laundry, so that's gone.  I think I will also stop paying bills.  That is such a boring job.  Maybe I can get away without completing my volunteer you think they will notice?  Oh!  I know!  I will also eliminate anything festive.  I mean who wants to do fun things when there are serious work things to do?

Okay, I admit, this doesn't sound much like a plan.  So, what do you do when your list gets longer than you can possibly ever tackle?
