Worksheet

From Mrs. Over-Do-It to Living with Intention

Being a natural do-er and helper, always on the go, saying “yes” to every person, project or request that comes your way CAN be fulfilling; UNTIL it’s not. Eventually, some of us find ourselves accidentally taking on more work than we are able to complete and offering more help than we have to give.   What starts out as good intention can turn into a burden and just another task we add to our “to-do” list. We start to think, “How did this happen? Why did I say yes”?

This worksheet will help you begin to:

  • be STILL in a busy world – and take care of yourself first
  • NOTICE the subtle signs in your everyday life (that are trying to get your attention)
  • Take ACTION starting today, filling your own cup first and then,
  • PROCEED with INTENTION, Contentment and Happiness

From Mrs. Over-Do-It to Living with Intention

From Mrs. Over-Do-It to Living with Intention

WORK LIFE: On a separate piece of paper or notecard, write down your “everyday” WORK To-Do List.

On the back side of the notecard, write down your “extra” WORK To-Do List (extra responsibilities asked of you or extra tasks you have taken on at work without being asked).

STILLNESS/Reflection: Read your list task by task and number them from most favorite to least favorite.

The least favorite tasks can be delegated if possible however it’s likely you’ll need to keep some of those “least favorites because you are truly the only one that can do “that” task.  Recognize those least favorite tasks and instead of resenting them, give them only the amount of energy they deserve and simply get them done. 

ACTION: Take Control of your TO – DO List:

Looking at the Daily To – Do’s written on the notecard or separate piece of paper – Which “to-do’s” will you need to keep? What can you delete or delegate? Be sure the To-Do’s you keep can be done with intention & deliberately rather than out of control, guilt or fear of something.

             KEEP:                                                                                         DELEGATE/DELETE:

Intentional: Done on purpose, deliberate.           Deliberate: Done or acting in a careful or slow manner.

Personal Life: On a separate piece of paper or notecard, write down your “everyday” HOME To-Do List

On the back side of the notecard, write down your “extra” HOME To-Do List (extra responsibilities asked of you or extra tasks you have taken on at home, in the community, for extended family, etc. without being asked).

STILLNESS/Reflection: Read though your KEEP list and number each task from most favorite to least favorite.

The least favorite tasks can be delegated if possible however it’s likely you’ll need to keep some of those “least favorites because you are truly the only one that can do “that” task.  Recognize those least favorite tasks and instead of resenting them, give them only the amount of energy they deserve and simply get them done.

 From Intuition to Intention

NOTICE: Pause, Be Still & Notice the “signs” in your everyday life:

List the signs that may be trying to get your attention: Phrases, objects, animals…then, look up their meaning  on an internet search or “be still” & reflect on what message God or the Universe may be trying to send you.

PROCEED with INTENTION:

Now that you have;

  • explored your work and personal “to-do” list,
  • you’ve identified any “to-do’s” that aren’t required of you, aren’t serving you or those that you’ve created on your own without being asked, and
  • you’ve noticed the “signs” in your everyday life that are trying to gain your attention and support you,

It’s time to proceed with intention.

Definition of Intention: a determination or plan to do a specific thing; the action or fact of intending.

“That was the day she made herself the promise to live more from intention and less from habit.”

~Amy Rubin Flett
