Wednesday’s ‘To Don’t Do’ List

I don’t know about you but I love to-do lists. Each time I complete something, I jauntily cross the item out with a Mr-Bean like smirk.

Yesterday, a friend sent me the video above. I was reminded we often (in the midst of busyness and task-orientation) miss out what is important. Savouring moments, relationships and connection. I love the concept mentioned of ‘To Don’t Do’ lists so here is mine:

— — — — — — — — — — 
To Don’t Do Today (and tomorrow and the day after and so on and so forth…):

Make an assumption about anyone, ever. Everyone has a story, every time. Find out more (this is hard, assumptions are like comfy, well-washed blankets!)

Stop asking questions

Stop speaking my mind (my thoughts and opinions matter and so do yours)

Procrastinate (especially when I know it is out of fear)

Waste moments on my phone / social media when I’m supposed to connect with the people I’ve got

Apologise for drawing boundaries and saying “No”, it’s healthy

Apologise for spending time on myself

Hide behind being busy

Always be doing something. Chilling is important and therapeutic. (especially with a good epic K-drama or two)

Email when I can meet face-to-face, message when my gut tells me a call is needed
