The Equilibrium Recipe


  1. Would it motivate you to feel more progress throughout the day?

  2. In the NOTES + IDEAS section, keep a “done” list and record tasks as you complete them throughout the day

    Tip: You can do this independently or in addition to your “to-do” list and your “not-to-do” list

Why This Recipe works

Keeping a “done” list serves multiple functions—

1) Documenting tasks as you complete them allows you to make more informed decisions about where to place your time and energy next

2) You’re more likely to stay motivated when you can see your progress

3) Adding completed tasks to your “done” list is a great way to celebrate the little wins throughout the day, and can drastically imprive your mood

Your turn! What’s on your DONE list today?
