It Is So Hard To Focus During The Summer!

Am I right? Lemonade stands, afternoon ice cream cones, pool water splashing on your face...mmmmm.

What a great season, but if you’re not disciplined, it can take a huge toll on your productivity and your to-do list.

If you find yourself wanting to lather up the sunscreen instead of meeting a deadline, you may need some words of encouragement. Here are some to-do list quotes to help you conquer the tasks in your life.

 

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and starting on the first one.

- Mark Twain

 

“Sometimes our stop-doing list needs to be bigger than our to-do list.”

- Patti Digh

 

The volume and complexity of what we know has exceeded our individual ability to deliver its benefits correctly, safely, or reliably.

- Atul Gawande

 

“Before you eat the elephant, make sure you know what parts you want to eat.”

- Todd Stocker

 

“Rename your “To-Do” list to your “Opportunities” list. Each day is a treasure chest filled with limitless opportunities; take joy in checking many off your list.”

- Steve Maraboli

 

“The only thing more important than your to-do list is your to-be list. The only thing more important than your to-be list is to be.”

- Alan Cohen

 

“Subtracting from your list of priorities is as important as adding to it.”

- Frank Sonnenberg

 

"Under conditions of complexity, not only are checklists a help, they are required for success."

- Atul Gawande

 

"No matter how expert you may be, well-designed checklists can improve outcomes."

- Steven Levitt

 

"I make lists to keep my anxiety level down."

- Mary Roach

 

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.

- Helen Keller
