My to do list is divided up into three (and as the day goes on, four) categories; Today, This Week, and This Month. If I figure out I can’t do something from Today, I’ll make a Tomorrow list, that gets priority the next day.
An example of how this looks:
•Empty work email inbox
•Take out trash
•Give dog a bath
•Finish *work task*
•Clean out closet
When I draft my todo list, I write in my bullet journal to keep track. On the left page, I make a list of all the items I want to complete that week, sort of like a menu. On the write page, I divide the menu items for different a days of the week. For each day, I write 3 big items I’d like to complete. If there are other, non-urgent items, I’ll create small bullet points after the 3rd todo list item.
- Where do you write your todo list? On a sticky note, a notes app or a journal?
- How many tasks do you have in your To-do list for one day?
- Do you prefer to do this in the morning? Or to prepare it the night before?
- How do you consistently keep and complete a to do list?
- How could I effectively use my time without laziness
- I need this to be so simple. And struggle to now what to include and what to leave out. Too basic and they seem pointless. Too detailed and they seem to take up too much time I could be focusing on other things… any suggestions on how to prioritise and discriminate between tasks to include and task to accept as given.
- Do you write the small and mundane tasks like cook, go for a walk etc on your list?
- What do you include in your most basic routines- what is something that simply must be done no matter what?
- Do you write only a few tasks on your to do list, or do you write everything that you have to do and then pick the top three or so to get done today? I’m never sure which approach is most effective.
- Do you check and adjust your to do list throughout the day? How do you remember?
