You have a “List.” I have a “List.” But are you LISTening to what your list is telling you?

Today we’re going to get very clear about WHAT, and WHY It, matters most to YOU…

To Do. To Day. To Now. To Later. Whatever your “List”…what matters most is why you’re “Listing” in the first place, and why you’re not LIVING…first.

As I was preparing my day, I grabbed one of my favorite pens, and a brightly colored planner — bright yellow to be exact — and I began to make a list of plans.

However, while I wrote, I began to think about WHY I was doing WHAT I was doing.

What made the list and what didn’t?

When would the “Later List” become my “Now List”…etc…

It got me thinking. It got me wondering about YOU.

How often during the day do YOU create a “List?” (And check it twice?)

Have you ever asked yourself “WHY?”

This is going to be a short and sweet one today…

I would like YOU to answer these questions for yourself and LISTEN to your LIST:

1. Why am I doing this?

What’s the vision for this mission?

Why are you putting it on a list versus putting yourself in action.

2. Does it really matter?

3. Do I believe in this?

(And does it match up with what I really desire?…)

4. Do I love this?

5. Why today?

6. Why NOT today?

7. Why LATER?

(Btw, has your “Later List” become your “Should List?”)

8. Am I really committed?

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) 


Take a look at your LIST today, especially your “Later List,” and get very honest with yourself as you answer the above 8 questions.

I’d love to hear what you discover…
