Why I Write Two Lists in the Morning
- •Weirdly meditative. I'm going to go for my phone when I first wake up and I know you're not supposed to, so at least this way I'm not checking email or Twitter. I'm reflecting, being creative, going with first instinct -- feels like meditation.
- •Makes me feel like one of those writers who journal for an hour first thing in the morning, but instead I'm listing for five minutes. Baby steps.
- •Once I write the second one, I think hey I could keep going! But I don't -- showing a discipline and self-restraint that makes me feel superior to my younger self.
- •If I forgot to make a list during the day, I would never forgive myself. I'm very new to it, but I love this app!
