Are you a creature of habit? Do you enjoy routine? What routines do you have? Do you have any routines that you wish you could break out of?
But even in real life, I like checklists. I schedule things and make time for things and add things I want to do to my checklist. My sister got me this book called Listography for all the lists I make and I'm wishing I took it with me to Singapore. So the next time I'm home, I'll probably bring it back with me.
There are pros to the checklist, I don't have to remember things too much and I can focus my brain energies on other things. And after a while, the checklists turn into routine and habit that I don't even need checklists for anymore. I also like the feeling of order amidst all the chaos in my life.
The downsides of course are that I'm sometimes ruled by these lists. When i want to do something, but there are other things on the list, i tend to prioritise the list and not give in to spontaneity, which is something I'm striving to do -- living in the moment (or so my Tinder profile claims).
Then of course, I can't sleep or move on if I know that I have an un-ticked to-do on my list. But I'm getting better at that. I already have things overdue!!! The horror. really though, I'm easing up. But hey, it works for me, I suppose. So that's all that matters.
