A to-do list and a what I want to achieve list are very different

When I make my daily to-do list I write down my appointments, what I need to pick up at the store, what I need to do at the bank … that kind of thing.  Then I think for a minute and try to put down some of the things I most want to achieve.  That list is very different:

It includes:

What one relationship do I most need to repair?

What one relationship do I most need to establish or improve?

What one thing do I most need to learn?

What one habit do I most need to break?

What one contribution would I most like to make?

I tell myself, “Don’t drift through the day. Live with intention and purpose and a clear agenda.”
