Here’s an interesting idea from Deborah Brown at Bizinformer.  She includes "rewards" in her daily list of things to do.  After completing a "must do" item she rewards herself with a "want to do" item.  By breaking up the day with small rewards the list of tasks just might not be so daunting.

On February 29, 1996, all the managers here at Tacony Corp.  attended a workshop on time planning from the Franklin Planner folks.  Many of us who were there are still faithfully using our planners every day.  I remember the date because I have all my planner pages archived since that day and because February 29 was a "bonus day" that year. 

It definitely helps to have all your information for the day arranged in one place,To_do_list_2

but sometimes that
"to do" list can be intimidating.  Inserting some mental breaks into your plan for the day could go a long way toward keeping a fresh perspective, keeping the creative juices flowing, and avoiding burn-out.

Give it a try and let us know if it works.
