I am horrible at following my carefully scripted lists. I can go on any of my four computers right now, and find lists that are at least 7 years old and younger! But I do need to make and follow same, otherwise, I am like a pinball machine, bouncing from one bumper/project to another. Do you know what? I just realized I have never made a list that I prioritized anything!! I just listed everything to be done. BIG MISTAKE!! Case in point: Let's say on my list were the following in random order "and actually are" #1. Weed the several tulip beds, prepare rose beds for incoming plants, fix trellises, paint birdhouses, repair broken deer fence, clear the trees from one area, etc. BUT, had I prioritized instead of just listing, I would have realized that if I did not repair the broken deer fence first, most of the other tasks, particularly those referring to tulips and roses, would be a waste of time in this "Bambi" breeding zone, unless I fixed the fence first! So I have learned something, WOW, prioritize the "to-do" list! There may be hope for me yet!
