If you need to declutter your to-do list, you are in good company! In this week’s podcast, Kathi continues her conversation with Tonya Kubo, grand poohbah of all things Clutter Free Academy online, about how to declutter your to-do list.
In Part One of this episode, Kathi and Tonya shared their own proven tips for managing an overwhelming to-do list and resetting when things feel out-of-hand. Today, they discuss how to use your calendar instead of a to-do list to bring wisdom and peace into your days.
Psalm 90:12 (KJV) says, “Teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” This powerful shift helps us to follow those words. You’ll discover how using a calendar to declutter your to-do list:
- Helps you prioritize
- Teaches you to guard your time
- Can bring peace to others around you
- Allows for relaxation in the midst of busy seasons

I completely get and agree with putting your to-dos in your calendar. But what about all the other things that are not pressing priorities? Projects, home improvement, etc.? I keep a notebook filled with those and look at them once in a while and try to take bites if we can.
Any other suggestions?
I do the same thing Helene! It feels so good to get one of those things done too!
I resonate so much with the overwhelming to-do lists. So funny because while I was traveling, I felt an overwhelming sense of panic as I was thinking of everything I had to get done in September. So I stopped and wrote it all down on a note in my phone. It does help to get it all down on paper. But Kathi is right about feeling like just writing it down gets it done. One big brain dump is great to have everything in one place but the action of planning out the to-do list is what is important. Using our calendar is a great way to do it. Sometimes tho my electronic calendar gets too busied so I have my paper planner that I use for ideas for my ministry for social media posts, blogs, etc and use it as my “what to do tonight” and meal planning. You guys are so smart!! Thanks for all the tips and all the ways you show that you are real. And I am a part of Tonya’s online community and can’t wait for her upcoming training! GO TONYA!!
