To do lists

I make myself a ‘To do’ list every day. It may sound fairly efficient but actually often isn’t. I think it just stops me panicking about the things I feel I should be getting done. Writing them down in a list makes me feel they’re reasonably contained and managed with the intention that they will happen soon.

It occurred to me the other day that I’ve subconsciously developed a method which I sometimes apply when I’m feeling a bit low and unproductive. I look at my list and identify the two or three things I least want to do. These are often administrative tasks that involve reading lots of small text or making phone calls where I have to sit on hold for ages. They are the things that stress me out and the ones I’m most likely avoid. Then I make myself do them so I can cross them off. It’s a bit of a psychological ‘pat on the back’. It doesn’t always work but I like this concept and try to do it when possible.

My name's Anna and I decided to write a blog following an accident last year. I will never regain the full use of my right hand and an operation led to additional, ongoing complications. This is about my struggles following the accident and the challenges of trying to save the use I still have in my hand. It’s a story about my product and why it appeared in my head one day because of my traumatic experiences. How I took that positive vision and worked towards bringing it to life. The challenges of putting it together and getting it to the market whilst still undergoing debilitating, ongoing treatment. It's a journey you can share with me. I'm not there yet...
