Just one thing...
If you wrote twenty things on your to do list for today and did twelve, would you feel more productive than if you had written one thing and done it ?
“It depends”, you would say, “on whether that one thing was more important than the other twelve”.
And that’s true - if that one thing moved you a good step closer to achieving your biggest goal, and the twelve things meant that you’d tidied your desk and replied to that e-mail that the sender had forgotten they’d even sent, doing that one thing would have been a much better use of today.
So why, when we write out our to do lists each day, would we baulk at the idea of writing down just one thing…?
