Would you like a quick way to get some focus to your day? Try listing 5 things you want to do before you die.
This is a powerful technique for revealing what things you should be working on today. We all have things we’d like to accomplish. But we aren’t making any meaningful progress toward them. That’s often because we forget about them in the busyness of daily activity. It’s the continual struggle between the urgent and the important.
The key to this activity is to do it quickly and do it now. Don’t let yourself spend more than 10 minutes creating the list. If you have in mind anything longer you’ll put it off and probably never do it. But you can surely spare 10 minutes. If you can’t do it right now, at least identify a time between now and bedtime, when you can do it.
Listing 5 things you want to do before you die may your key to getting God’s best today and redeeming the time.
