Getting it all done

Getting it all done. Do you ever struggle with this?
I do! My to do list continues to get longer, and my days feel like they are getting shorter.
I recently read a helpful post by Jon Acuff.

In order to survive, I came up with a 5-step secret to getting it all done. If you are busy too, feel free to use it:

Step 1.
Admit that you can't possibly get it all done.

Step 2.
Give yourself the grace to accept that as reality, not failure.

Step 3.
Do the things you can do with your full attention.

Step 4.
Celebrate what happens during step 3, instead of obsessing over the things you didn't get to.

Step 5.
Repeat as necessary.



  1. Your posts have all been so inspirational lately. What a wonderful reminder that it's ok not to get everything done, especially when your list is never ending.

  2. Those 5 steps sound like real gems! And I love your photo of the night sky...absolutely gorgeous!
