I put down what I think I can actually get done. It’s always more than I actually do. My priorities are those that have a deadline.
I have been trying the ABC method of prioritizing items on my to do list. I started with a laundry list of to do’s and now pick the A items for today’s to dos if I finish those I go back and look at B items and add. I do add tasks to my current to do list so as not to forget when the thought comes up, but I put lower on the page. I guess it is like having a master to do list and taking the top 4 things over to the next day. Since I use a notebook and can flip pages it works for me but as I was typing this realize it may be cumbersome for some folks. Good luck!
- 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?
- Do you ever feel like you write to much stuff to do for one day?
- Do you write down your routines too or skip them since they are ‘routines’?
- Which order do you accomplish your tasks? Due date? Importance? Fun making it?
- what are some things you always put on your to do? do you find that having the same activity at the same space everyday makes you more likely or less likely to actually do it??
