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.
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.
Not usually, just ones that are more urgent considering the amount of time I can allocate on the day, thinking realistically
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.
I do! I find that having the reminder for myself helps me potentially get started on that item earlier. Or just attempt to.
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 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 🙂
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.
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!
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.
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!
- 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?
