I do! I find that having the reminder for myself helps me potentially get started on that item earlier. Or just attempt to.
- How do you find motivation for doing all tasks when it gets too difficult?
- What type of phrasing is the most effective one when it comes to ordering the self? I generally use sentences like “do the dishes” and then I get mad at myself and don’t do the dishes because I was mean to my future self the day before.
- How do you get motivated to exercise?
- I’d like to ask other members about their rituals. How do they set theirs and what does that look like?
- Do you write completing your daily rituals as part of your to-do list or should I keep them separate?
Yes, but I prefer just doing one day at a time because there will be delays, and you won't be able to plan very far ahead accurately. Stay agile!
I have a daily to-do list and a weekly to-do list, so I add certain things from the weekly list to the daily list, when it's the right time 🙂
Absolutely. I have a calendar and add my to do’s day by day as well as what I know is coming for the week ahead on Sunday’s.
If it’s a project that will take me a few days and has to be worked on as a priority, that’s the only thing I write and work on.
No, every night I do a to-do list for the next day only. Trying to be realistic and not overplan it. Whatever doesn’t get done will be reschedule or reevaluated at the end of the day. I visualise myself and kinda how I want the day to play out. It makes the day more consistent and productive. You feel less overwhelmed by focusing only on the day ahead and not on a whole week/month of chores and deadlines.
And things actually get done.
And things actually get done.
For me I don’t. It’s hard to tell what the next day will bring, especially when you’re productive. You may get done with an assignment on Monday that was due on Wednesday, therefore opening up your schedule for the day which means your short-term goals for the week change. The most I’ll do is set my due dates or when I need a certain thing done for in advanced and make sure I’m progressing in it Day by due in my to dos.
I like to add those, but with low priority so I know it is there and I don't forget to do it. If I am having a particularly productive day I might even be able to finish that, too!
Not usually, just ones that are more urgent considering the amount of time I can allocate on the day, thinking realistically
adding to_dos later from now only adds todo list items. keeping todo list short ensures it can be completed. so i suggest leave it for the day tey are due or a day before
I use a Bullet journal, so I have 2-3 lists. I think what works best for me is a small list of bigger/most important tasks tasks for the month, in addition to a longer list for the week, including any specific ones from the monthly list, e.g. pay credit card bill. Then, on the weekly list, I mark the tasks I'm going to focus on for that specific day with a dot and, of course, cross them off when done.
- What happens when you don’t have anything to do?
- Share your to do list templates/techniques
- How can I effectively stick to my to do list?
- What do you do when you don’t complete everything on your to do list? How do you not feel defeated?
- What to do items can you make into routines or habits instead?
- How do you balance making your to do list both feasible and inspiring? (If my to do list is only things I know I can get done in a day it is too simple and makes me not feel like I will achieve the things I want to
- I’m interested to know how many todo lists others have
- How far should I scale back my expectations when I fail? What if I fail every time for the rest of my life?
- How many items do you write in your To-do?
- How do you make time for yourself with 5 kids and a husband who works 12-14 hours a day?
