Try switching the meaning of your lists. Read them as a collection of good opportunities to add value towards your goals and life as a hole. Don't fall for the trap where they become an obligation and they mean you are "at fault" with them.
This is something I have thought about and want to explore a little. The question is how exactly to do that change in attitude toward the lists. Just telling myself, saying the words, that the lists are a set of self-chosen opportunities and not an imposed drudgery from some malevolent external force clearly doesn't help. Changing an attitude is not trivial. But it's an interesting challenge. A new project to put in my project list that I don't look at enough?
