Two To-do List

You cannot live that extraordinary life that you want, if you keep
doing ordinary things throughout your day.
Ordinary things are those things you normally do like house
chores, errands, cleaning, fixing, etc. Extraordinary things are
the things that will move you closer towards your dreams and goals.
Make two to-do lists. One for your ordinary things you regularly
do and the other for the things that will get you closer towards your dreams.

"The road to extraordinary living cannot be paved by ordinary
actions." ~Andres Lara

  • Hi Ebun-missed you! So what is on your to-do list (the one that gets you closer to your goals)?

  • This is some very deep thoughts. I never quite thought of doing this by viewing them as ordinary and extraordinary. A very different way to view but I like it.

  • Are planning on been the next Zig Ziglar or some great motivational speaker? Have read a lot and been to lot of biz meetings but i hvnt heard of 2 to do list. or have I forgoten or maybe I never took note of it. Not a bad idea though. God pls help me to get this done. the problem is, I get too focused on my biz runs and hardly have time for chores. maybe when Mr meant to be comes, this will come very handy. Nice post.

  • It's so easy to get caught up in the "everyday" chores and tasks...but it is so important to take some time away to do things that will get u closer to ur dreams...makes sense...

  • I agree, do all you can to get to your goal.

    By Blogger Ebun, at 3:54 PM  

  • That is a great idea, Ebun ...2 lists. A different way to do things. Thanks for the idea.

    Take care, Meow

    but sometimes the most ordinary things that we do, end up being the most extraordinary living for some others :)

    gooid luck Ebun!

  • ebun and amara-You are both very uplifting (spiritually and emotionally) and motivational-maybe you should consider writing a book (or two)?

    I need to start the 2nd list and maybe update my "ordinary" list!

  • Was reading somewhere that one should live one's life by a compass (so you know which direction you are going) and not by the clock.
