There are times in life when my to-do lists get put on hold because of my life’s circumstances.

Sometimes, it’s a reason I love, like after I have a baby. Sometimes, it’s a reason I hate, like when I’m experiencing depression.

I was complaining to a friend of mine once, during an episode of depression, how unproductive I am, how unaccomplished, etc. etc.

She asked, “What’s on your to-do list? What’s so urgent that you have to do it now?”

I answered, “My dresser tops are a mess.”

“That goes on your not-to-do list,” she answered.

“I have an event I want to plan.”

“That goes on your not-to-do list,” she answered.

“I want to organize my menu/shopping list system.”

“That goes on your not-to-do list,” she answered.

I think that having a not-to-list is sheer brilliance. And I don’t just mean when life throws you some curveballs and so you have no choice. I mean right now.

What’s on your to-do list that doesn’t need to be there? That’s stressing you out every time you look at it? What do you want to move onto your not-to-do-list until your kids are grown and out of the house? Or until your baby sleeps through the night?

Make your own not-to-do-list.
