Vegetate at peace

Are the days you just “veg” good days?

You know what I mean. It’s your day off, you just vegetate at home.

I’ve been having a few of these days these past couple of weeks. How can I do this and go on with peace of mind?

The weekly review! (If you need a refresher, Black Belt Productivity summarizes chapter 8.)

Sure, my schedule is really wide open now that I’m not coaching. Aside from that, there’s always something for me to do – it just so happens that most of the tasks I have written down aren’t that important.

Reading through David Allen’s “Ready For Anything”, chapter 13 hit home:

If I didn’t have the lists I have, and if I hadn’t done a thorough review of them within the last few days, I wouldn’t have been able to trust my inventory of ‘defined work’ was complete and current this morning. And that it could wait. […] Without my lists, I would probably still have pruned my pine tree this morning — but for all the wrong reasons.

I love how I don’t worry as much as the average person. I’m not apathetic, I’m just at peace with all my lists. What about you?
