#BlogElul 2013: Do

Things to be done. Things to do. Doing, doing, doing.

Sometimes, it’s really easy to retreat from the seemingly endless list of things that need to get done, and fall instead into a hopeless puddle of inertia, enabled by the internet.  The “to-do” list seems to grow ever longer, the alerts and notifications creating a buzzing sensation in my brain, all the things that need to be DONE, but aren’t, that I’m not doing, or only partially doing, but are not done.

So, I take a deep breath.

I work on the lists of things to do. I break it up. I do what I can, when I can, which takes more effort some times than others.

And yet, when I do do things that need to be done? I feel great.

It’s not always easy to do the things we need to do, should do, ought to do. But it’s also not helpful to get stuck, or to beat yourself up when you don’t do all the things that need to get done.

Instead, do what you can do. Some days, that’s a lot. Others, not so much. In the end, it all gets done one way or another and if it doesn’t, well hey, it couldn’t have been that important, right? 😉
