Picoblog Question – 2020 – Post #10

Picoblog Question – 2020 – Post #10

Here are nine lovely words–love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Continuing today with peace, how can each of us have more peace on a daily basis?

My two cents, but please share yours:

I absolutely love daily to-do lists! They are my primary toolset for keeping peace in my life.

Each task gets yanked out of the mind, written down on paper, and assigned to the to-do list for the day it needs to be tackled. Peace comes from no longer worrying, no longer having tasks swirling around the mind.

But, I take it one step further. Each day, I code each task with an M for morning, A for afternoon, or E for evening. This step narrows the focus on tasks even further, to just a third of the day, thereby reducing the worry and adding to the peace.

So, how can you have more peace on a daily basis?


  1. I use to-do lists, in part as a time-management tool. One of the things I usually include on them is ‘make a to-do list’ – weird but it kind of prods me into actually thinking about what has to be done so I can organise everything into big and small jobs.

    • Not weird at all, Matthew! The last item on each of my to-do lists is to make the list for one week out. So, if it is Wednesday, the last action item is “Make to-do list for next Wednesday.” 🙂 Cheers, Ashley

  2. “So how can we have more peace on a daily basis?”

    Right now, for me: Do not read the news, do not listen to or watch the news. Avoid the media, work in my garden, play with the cat, cook, sing. 🙂

    Be well, Ashley!

    • All are great solutions, Aunt Mary! Be well, too. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley
