I read this awesome idea at reddit the other day and I wanted to share it with you:
Write down the things you wish you could do when you have no time, then do those things when you’re bored.
As simple as that.
We all know the feeling of daily stress and having a lot on our minds. Often the best ideas come at the worst times and sometimes we just postpone them mentally until we forget. The next time we think of them we are likely to be in another stressful situation without much time on our hands.
On the other hand there are times when we sit around, have nothing much to do and think about what we could possibly do (other than watching TV, playing videogames or any other leisure activity). This will be the time when your new To-Do-List comes in. It is different than your typical To-Do-List, because it is not a list of things that you have to do right now, but a list of things that you would love to do “if you got time to do it”. So basically every time you will look at the list, you will have a great pool of ideas to work on.
Typical entries on such a list could be things like “Write a letter to my grandparents” or “Get started on learning some coding language”
Be careful though not to write down idea after idea without ever acting on them. Nothing is more frustrating than a long and meaningless To-Do-List without anything actually crossed out.
That’s it for today, I hope some of you think of this idea as highly as I do.
Good luck with your lists!
