Dear Mr. To-Do List,
It is out of sincere respect that I write you this letter, given that you have been my life-blood, my driving force and a form of organized chaos. I appreciate our daily kick-offs, check-ins and your reliability, and I could never survive without you.
However, over the past four months your performance has been hindering the work and efficiency of the larger group. Your demands increase everyday and what you provide in return for these demands in minimal. I have often noticed that you will spout off, numbering your requirements as if they were easy to accomplish, and then sit there, mocking me as I frantically run around trying to appease you.
Furthermore, I recommend that we continue to work on your team player attitude. As you are aware, we spend a lot of time together – listing, organizing, planning and prioritizing. However, what I would like to see in return is more support. If I am unable to attend one of your high-pressing items, please be flexible and realize that I am doing my best to ensure your needs are met. If something is urgent, please ping me with “high importance.”
Overall, I do appreciate and value the sanity that you bring to my life. We just need to work on keeping your demands at bay, because in return, my life will regain a level of normalcy.
Thank you for your time and please let me know if you have any questions.
All my best,
