Yes, sometimes. Especially when I have received big news or if I tend to be ill or when my environment has changed. But I find that I am able to return to my system after a while given that it’s properly engrained, especially if it involves daily rituals.
- Writing a ToDo is easy. Following up on it seems really difficult to me even using the ABC rule. How do you *do* it?
- How can you best use your phone as a notebook for to-dos?
- I struggle with chronic ADHD and even with treatment can’t focus on doing things in an orderly fashion. How can I stay on task?
- What’s working better for you: exercising first thing in the morning or after your one big thing is done? Or evening?
- What if I only have one big thing to do? Now I’m working on the first chapter of my thesis.
Definitely. That's what is going on with me and my bullet journal. Although, I often journal because writing things down really helps me, I often overwhelm myself.
Yes, I have to form the habit little by little to make the methods stick. Every so often I mentally evaluate what worked and what I can do better next time.
I think complacency is the biggest problem for me. When I’m feeling like everything is running smoothly I begin to forget WHY it’s going so well and I start to break my own rules (habits). It’s frustrating to have to learn that lesson the hard way – over and over!!
I didn't use to have an organization system so far. I tried in certain period but it didn't last so much especially in those periods I was a bit depressed
Yeah. Sometimes it's difficult to get back on track. Especially if you're sick or something unexpected happens. But it's important to remember that we can't plan everything no matter how hard we try.
It has happened in the past when the system I used was not the best suited to me at that time. For instance I used to be absolutely unable to effectively use to do lists. Nowadays I have a really effective system in place that leverage to do lists and it is strongly established in my daily routine. I think it’s about really finding how you can make the system work for you, until you do that it won’t stick.
Most definitely! Cureently i'm trying to write an essay and it is such a mess and all my good habits that ive been working on building have been decimated
- Do you write fun things too? Like eat ice cream.
- How do you manage tracking tasks that are both short and long term?
- How can I be more forgiving towards myself if I don’t get round to doing all the tasks I set out to complete?
- What do you do to avoid procrastination?
- How do you stay focused with exercising every day even when your whole body is sore because of the said exercise?
- Do you write your to-do list before bed or after waking up? Which once yields a longer list? Which yields more progress and completions?
- How do you remember your tasks and force yourself to check up on them in your to-do list?
- How do you prioritise your tasks? What do you consider most important?
- How should I write my to-do list?
- Sometimes I still tend to think about too many things I have to get done and I would write them out in a list. Yet I still have trouble prioritizing them and sticking to the 3 most important ones. How do I get rid of this overwhelming feeling?
