As summer begins, many of us are reviewing our to-do lists and setting goals for the next couple of months.
Here at ProfHacker, we’ve previously discussed tools like Remember the Milk, Google Tasks, Things, Evernote, and TeuxDeux that can help you manage your task lists. (Or Action lists, if you follow David Allen’s Getting Things Done method.)
Today, however, I want to focus on a simple question that can help ensure that you put the right actions on those to-do lists, whatever tool you use to capture them:
What do you want more of, this summer?
(And yes, grammar police, I know that technically I should have said, “Of what do you want more”, but that just sounds more stuffy than summertime deserves.)
Do you want more fun?
Do you want more rest?
Do you want more intellectual intensity?
Do you want more peace?
When you’ve answered this question, then you can begin figuring out what actions you might take to increase the fun, rest, intensity, or peace coming your way over the next few weeks.
What do you want more of, this summer? Let us know in the comments!
