It helps me to separate the inbox of my todos and the 3 top tasks I hope to achieve during the day. My notebooks and Todo apps are the inbox that I will add tasks to throughout the day. But I usually try to finish my top 3 in the morning. They are usually things I do for own growth, such as learning languages, reading, and writing. So even there are new and urgent tasks later that day that I need to respond to, such as responding to emails, at least I've accomplished something for my long-term goal. It also helps when you communicate with your colleagues, friends and family to plan ahead your time together, so there are less unpredictable tasks.
I write an extensive list in the evening as it comes to mind. Prioritize by numbers. The next morning I will revise the list and do three most important tasks until they are done.
- Do you have any time management tips by any chance? I often find it takes me longer to complete tasks than it should
- How many things do you have in your to do list?
- When you reflect at the end of the day, do you have a penalty system if you did not complete what you said you would?
- If you don’t finish the list , do you leave it or put it on again the next day ?
- How to order to do list when you have so much things to do?
- How many items do you put on your daily to-do list?
- regarding writing and completing the to-do list, how do you keep yourself accountable?
- Do you have a notebook ONLY for your task list?
- Do you ever include “daily routine” items on your To-Do list? While you’re forming the habit? Always?
- I would like to know how you deal with Events etc. that require you to change your plans and so also your to do list or completely change your timetable?
