When the tasks on the list are fuzzy, you resist the list. You wind up welcoming any diversion that gives you an excuse not to tackle the work you planned. As you plan the day, word the tasks so they are crystal clear. When you look at the task, you know exactly what to do. You can’t wait to tackle it and check it off as done. When your list is doable, staying focused on the list becomes surprisingly easy.
