I recently attended a leadership conference where I was asked "what do you have on your Done List". Immediately my mind went into over drive thinking about all of things I need to do; totally over-looking the things I have completed.
This concept of acknowledging or writing down my accomplishments was foreign to me. I was brainwashed into believing that the only way to be productive and accomplish your goals was to create and maintain a "To Do List". No one ever mentioned that in order for me not to be frustrated and stressed out that I also needed to maintain a "Done List".
