I currently have my main to-do list (with about 10 items) and a 2nd priority list that comprises of less important things that still need to be done but with less urgency. On occasion I can delete things but in general all these items really need to be done, at some point. I realized that I’ve simply been moving items from my main list to my 2nd priority list just to get the feeling of getting things done. Sad, I know!
Note: Most of the items cannot be outsourced. It’s either small stuff like handwashing sweaters or financial/health-related (privacy concerns).
