Beat the Stress: Do THIS Not THAT

Order Gifts ON-LINE - cross that off your list! DONE!!!

This morning, I took a look at my ‘to-do’ list and screamed.  Okay, I didn’t really scream but there was an audible sigh!  So much to do, so little time!  How am I – how are YOU – going to manage to get it all done within a few short weeks?  Before Chanukah, Christmas and Kwanzaa hit; before the New Year rolls in?


Even before 2012?  (Before the world ends?  In which case, is any of my to-do list relevant …. Oh, I digress)?

In between the audible sigh and predictions of the living end, a miracle happened (again).  Our Lady of Weight Loss hit me upside the head (with a celery stick) and reminded me that I already have a kick-tush strategy to deal with the to-do’s in my arsenal of mass reduction!

I immediately took the advice of OLofWL, which essentially was to take my own good advice, and here follows the best Do THIS Not THAT Tool ever!

Draw a line down the center of a piece of paper. On one side of the paper write ‘to do’ list, and then on the other side of the page write ‘not to do.’


Now, write out all you have to do on the to do side of the page. We really do have ridiculously long ‘to do’ lists, don’t we?
Here comes the fun part! Take a good look at your ‘to do’ list and take anything on it that someone else could do for you and move it to your ‘not to do’ list.

For instance, the laundry.  Either find someone else in the house who is capable of tossing it into the washer and drier to do the laundry or send it out. Not only are there people and places who do laundry, they pick up, deliver and fold it!

Is food shopping taking up too much of your precious time? Order on-line or call-in a standing delivery to your neighborhood grocery store.


Cleaning? Forgetaboutit. I’m lucky. My husband has a much lower tolerance to mess than I do. I can count on him to clean up!
Lighten Your Load. Write out your Not to Do List today and get ‘busy.’
Spread the word … NOT the icing,
