That's where My Top 7 list comes in. For me, it's 7, but you might have a Top 5 list or even a Top 10 (but I don't recommend that)! We all have days where we feel overwhelmed and don't know where to begin - that's what this list helps me do.
What's on my Top 7?
- meds & shot
- make bed
- swish & swipe bathroom
- start laundry
- dishwasher (load/unload or start)
- drink water
I put "top 7" in my planner as a task to remind myself that I want to start there, and I also track the tasks on a tracker that I printed on a 3x3 sticky note. This has done wonders for my productivity, and my household runs smoother when I am consistent.
In short, make a list of your starters. Decide how you will be accountable (planner entry, tracker). Start there first every day.
If you're interested in a tracker you can print on sticky notes, stop by my Instagram page. You will find a link in the bio that will lead you to the printable.
Do you do anything similar to this to help when you're unmotivated?
