Make a Daily DONE List! A Little Reflection will Keep you Motivated to Live your Bucket List

greyson hawe

It’s easy to feel like you’re getting nothing Done

Getting nothing accomplished

Feeling like the days are slipping away

You have a never ending to-do list

And no matter how many you scratch off, there’s always more, growing like a fungus

That makes it hard to keep your eyes on the prize

That makes it hard to stay motivated on Living your Bucket List


During my six week power cleanse I last year for my health bucket list, I realized how much tracking my progress (daily photos) really helped me stay motivated

So I recently wanted to start tracking my life in a new way

BUUUUT, ...

Keeping a diary is hard for me

I have a journal, but use it rarely

So what's the answer?!

 

Well, I've recently found a powerful ally to those two, ...

The Done List!

<Here are some nice examples of Done Lists>

So every night, before I go to bed, I write down my ‘Dones’

BIG ONES

and

small ones 

Big accomplishments that may change my world AND small accomplishments I need to do to keep my world going

(Secret: Tracking the small things brings motivation 3 ways:

1. By Reminding you about the Small Wins

2. By Reminding you to be Grateful for your wins (grateful people are motivated people!)

3. By Tracking the small things you are Tracking the BIG things)

Enjoy the Little Things, for one day you may look back and realize THEY WERE the Big Things!
— Robert Brault

The Uber-successful, Marc Andreessen uses his own variation of a Done List, ... 

Each time you do something, you get to write it down and you get that little RUSH of Endorphins that the mouse gets every time he presses the button in his cage and gets a food pellet.

And then at the end of the day, before you prepare tomorrow’s 3x5 card, take a look at today’s card and its Anti-Todo list and MARVEL at all the things you Actually Got Done that Day!
— Marc Andreessen

Why ToDo Lists don't work and DONE Lists do!

 

 

I’m currently using the free version of iDoneThis to stay motivated as I focus on my bucket list life

 

So, I take a few minutes every night to reflect and in return,

I get a reminder that I Actually DID get some things done today.  Sometimes great things!

I strengthen myself for tomorrow morning

I sleep with a much more content and happy mind

And I wake up with a powerful self-impression, ready to take on the world!
