    Sometimes I find that I have too much going on at once, and have to stop and reprioritize what is most important.

      This situation we all share! And you are so right, we MUST stop and make a 7/3 list. Of ten things to do, only three is more important! This thinking has helped me to get away from stress.

      I understand and am empathetic. Recent health issues and work life has changed everything for me. I have to say 'goodbye' to projects I desire to do, or at least 'box them up' and put into storage. We all know what happens to stuff in storage - smile.

      I have given myself until May 1st to do the reorganization with the veiw of a 3 - 5 year plan. My plan essentially is 5 spokes. Any more and I would forget them. The other thing I am working on is simplify, simplify, simplify home chores etc.

    Sometimes I think I have to many irons in the fire, then I remember the fire I have burning out back !

    If I make a list it is what I am going to do in the next hour. Otherwise, I keep in my mind the things I have to do and do them as the need for them for the available time arises. I am unemployed at the moment and this approached worked. I held my last job for 22 years whee I was PR director, IT director, investment director and secretary-treasurer. My priorities changed constantly and accordingly little time was left for making a list.

    I had a co-worker who wrote a to-do list every afternoon and then re-wrote it the next morning because circumstances had changed.

    Keep in your mind the important stuff and be flexible.
