Honor thy "someday" list.
When something falls off the daily to-do list (replace the sweater button; go to the Post Office), one would be right in assuming that it can slip onto tomorrow's today list and eventually get done. Then there's the "someday" list (learn to needlepoint; go to Prague). There's no time limit for those to-dos, right? Actually, productivity expert Laura Vanderkam has found that if those larger, more complex goals languish on your list for more than six weeks, they probably won't happen at all
. Now is your someday. Find the most important thing on the "someday" list (hello, look for a new job!) and begin the process now so that, someday, you'll get to cross it off.
