Stress and your Current List
Here's a point to consider: The more stressed you are, the shorter - not longer - your Current List should be.
I know, this feels wrong somehow. My ingrained tendency too is to try and get everything done as soon as possible, if not sooner. So I start putting tasks on my Current list, jumping from project to project until it sinks in that 1) there is No Way to get all of this done in a day, and 2) the overhead of moving between so many projects is going to eat up my day.
Given 43 projects and 289 things I've got to do, I narrowing my Current list for tomorrow to just 9 tasks that should take about 5 hours in two projects. I can look at that list and feel relief washing through me: hey, no sweat! I can do this!
I don't know what I will do with the rest of tomorrow yet. But I don't need to know either. I'm just looking forward to crossing off the last thing and enjoying a clear Current List tomorrow. A good way to go to sleep.
