The Story Behind Surrender to Todo

Illustrated by EEK.

Todo lists: is anything scarier than them? The terror you feel watching a todo list grow is worse than when Freddie Krueger comes at you in your dreams. While marking things off your list is a joy unlike anything else, the act of compiling and keeping up with a todo list sometimes feels too daunting.

Yet people forget that they’re capable of a lot more than they give themselves credit for, I’m definitely guilty of only focusing on the to-dos and not the dones. Also, todo lists are ubiquitous for a reason. It is an easy and manageable way to tackle your tasks. As with all things, you have to pace yourself. You have to find the right flow and, for goodness’s sake, you can’t overload yourself. Sometimes people feel superhuman when making a todo list! I can achieve everything, they think. Slow down, tiger. One thing at a time. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Besides, you can always put your todo list down and come back to it later. It’ll be there...waiting.
