Throughout my life, I have listened to people say - "It's on my 'List of Things To Do'". However, saying it and creating it, are two entirely different things! One assumes that by placing it on the list, the task is ready for a strike of busyness. While other people smile when I say it; as if it is just a thing one wants to say, when you really don't want to be rude and want to appear too busy.
It's on my 'List of Things To Do'
My list of things to do, are those things that I believe could enhance my skills; those which I would benefit from checking out, at a later date. My list of priorities however, are quite different. The latter are items I believe I MUST do, in order for me to move forward on my life-hood plan, goals and dreams (all things I want to achieve in my life). Most people go through life with only one plan, few write anything down on a daily basis; even fewer write or plan their life, in order to achieve those goals and much fewer than that, ever achieve their verbalised goals. For me, they are verbalisations and remain mere pipe dreams, all because people fail to act on a LIST that they should have written down - at least once throughout their existence. I say existence, because it is just that. Going through the motions of living; failing to have really lived, because one fears...'what if I succeed'.
