The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – June 23

2021 Daily Writing Challenge Q2

At the beginning of April, I created a massive To-Do list. I felt anxious, stressed, and I found it difficult to sleep because I couldn’t stop my brain from running in a never-ending circle. When I dreamed, it was a nightmare of failures because I forgot something important. To end the madness, I opened an Excel spreadsheet and performed a brain dump. The exercise yielded a list of 208 items. No wonder I was a basket case. I then created categories and due dates, set up filters, and assigned color codes. I love Excel. That night I finally slept well.

The Brain-dump list became my lifeline, and each week I update the file. It has grown larger but nothing crazy. There are now 231 line items, with 51 items forever moved into the completed column. This week I am juggling 74 In-process tasks. By Friday, I hope to transfer another 12 items to the TA-Done column. Yesterday I finished assembling five of the ten new dining room chairs. The stairs received two finish sealer coats, and work began on refinishing all nine interior doors. I even finished the book on my daily reading list and started on the next one. Every day I celebrate the small wins.

Even with the hustle and bustle, I didn’t forget my number one priority. My habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Yesterday I wrote 195 words.

Did you write yesterday?
