A question before you write your to-do list

If I could only get one thing done today, what would it be?

Because as satisfying as it is to have a to-do list that looks like this, it’s nothing more than a distraction from the most important task:

  1. Wake up
  2. Have shower
  3. Brush teeth
  4. Turn on computer
  5. Make coffee
  6. Drink coffee
  7. Check email
  8. Delete spam emails
  9. Review contract for new client
