My Ten Suggestions

This morning I woke up early and went for a great walk.  When I walk by myself I often multitask and pray for a while.  It was on the walk I decided I would make a list of 10 things I might try to do every day.

I also decided to start a notebook to keep track of all the new ideas and lists.  So here goes.  Here is my first list.

My Ten Suggestions to Have a Happy, Healthy and More Productive Life

After I wake up every day I would like to:

1.  Go for a walk.

2.  Pray on the way.

3.  Read something that inspires me.

4.  Write list of 3 new creative ideas of things I might like to do (if money were no object)

5.  Get dressed... look like I care.

6.  Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like prince and dinner like a pauper.

7.  Get to my desk before 6:30 AM. (before the market opens in NYC.)

8.  Look at my To Do List and do the most important thing first.

9.  Write a note/email or make a call and surprise someone out of the blue.

10.  Make a list of three or more "must do" things for tomorrow before I go to bed.

This is by no means a list to end all lists... but it is a list that is doable for me and I think will help me to be more happy, healthy and productive.

Now try your hand at it and make up your list of 10 things that will make your life better.

  1. Well, dear you are preaching to the converted over here... lists make my world go round. Enjoy your list, embrace the 'doing' of it and love it!

  2. I too love lists--and I try and make a list everyday--I really like the things on your list--and you are right, Shirley Ann, lists do make the world go round!!This is something that I am going to embrace and do daily--thanks for sharing.

  3. your list seems to be missing the "bang your head on the desk" step! ha..

  4. You are right son. There are many days I need to bang my head on the desk!

  5. Great list. How's it going with checking off all 10 every day? You know I love a list! (Wonder where I got that from!?)

  6. It doesn't always happen... but I enjoy trying.
