The Challenge of the Checkbox

We like crossing things off our lists of tasks, ticking the box.

When we cross off things on our lists, we get a brief sense of calm and freedom. And that’s the problem. It’s brief. As soon as we complete one thing there is always more to do.

Read how that’s actually a good thing here. And instead of despair, go for the real sense of calm and freedom that comes from

  • knowing you will never be done,
  • knowing you can ride atop the waves of tasks in work and life, and
  • deciding from amongst all that you could do what you will do, now.


To your continued success,
