I love To Do Lists. I make them for everything. This week (if you start a week on Sunday) has been killer for me. It's probably the same part of my brain that likes getting achievements.
I over-list everything, that way I always feel the progress of moving forward. For instance this week I am selling my truck so instead of "Get Truck Ready To Sell" I have six different items like "Get truck title", "Clean out glove box", "check fluids in truck", etc. I feel like I have done 80 things in the last two days.
I even have a special app that gives me recurring To Do's like house stuff and creative projects like "write five pages" that way I can see how long it's been since I did those.
