#5 – Master the Art of Underachieving

I won’t lie, it feels fantastic to tick off a bunch of things from my to-do list by the end of a day.

It gives me a rush.

But by the end of a long list, my brain is melted or I end up feeling like a failure because if I didn’t get everything done.

For the past weeks, I have been pairing my list down to one or two things per day, like paying my online bills or cleaning the bathroom. Even making the bed (which I find a chore) can be a “thing” on the list.

I can be assured that I will finish those few items but I am also assured a sense of accomplishment.

I never thought that mastering the art of underachievement could be a good thing…but it has been.

    Marquessa, I love your idea about underachievement! I am a list maker, but my lists always far exceed my abilities. I hate to see on Friday that I haven’t completed everything on Monday’s list! I think I’ll try your new practice of just putting a couple of things on my daily lists.
