This fabulous Monthly To Do List with the Scripture reminder that ‘the joy of the Lord is our strength’ is a great way to keep track of those once a month tasks that need to be done, or use it as a way of recording some bigger tasks that you want to get through, which you might break down into smaller tasks for your Weekly To Do List. It’s a great way to keep you on track and focused, and it’s a great feeling when you get to cross those things off your list.
How many items should be on your to do list?
Some people say you should only have 1-3 items to do each day. I think this can be especially true for moms with busy lives.
Trying to take on too many things can becoming overwhelming and discouraging if you’re not getting through all the things on your list.
Keep it simple and doable which will keep you motivated.
Its also great seeing all the things you’ve managed to tick off over the month. Sometimes we think we haven’t gotten through anything, but we’ve done more than we think!
What should my priorities be?
Your priorities should be the non negotiables and the things that just cant wait.
For example you might want to clean out your pantry and you might need to pay your car insurance by tomorrow.
I would say the pantry can wait and the car insurance should be done asap. A bit of a silly example but you get my point 😉
Remember whilst everything feels urgent, not all of it often is. Pray about the things you need to do, ask God what you should do now and what can wait.
We can’t do everything, so be kind to yourself!
