Manageable ones! It can be longer if it includes lots of little things, but shorter if tasks are harder or take longer to complete
I like longer ones because it gives me something to do if I get board. So when I am board I can look at my list and find something productive to do.
I’ve done long lists for years, and recently shifted to a shorter, more focused list – and I’m getting much more accomplished every day!
I think shorter but more meaningful. If the list is prioritised I think it helps & provides a sense of achievement. If the list is extensive it can be a distraction of loads of things that aren’t meaningful but just general to do things that would be a part of a normal day anyway. I write my priority to do list & complete a 2nd list with the less important tasks that I will set aside an hour to get through as many of them as possible. Those that I dont get through in the hour I will leave until the next hour tmro.
- How far in advance do you put tasks on your to do list? I am a big procrastinator and if I see something on my to do list that’s not due for a while I tend to just ignore it. Any suggestions on how to solve this?
- How far ahead should one write their list.. i.e. daily, weekly or monthly?
- Is it any way to make do to list more creative but still keep them simple?
- What strategies do you use to prioritize & organize “to do now” vs “to do later” tasks?
- How to make sure you stick to your list when something else that you need to finish first just popped out?
- How to make a to do list more interesting?
- time management? How to be more effective with time? I am a person who cares a lot about details, and in my work, I tend to refine concepts a lot. I find myself time swept often and offset my to do’s.
- How can I do a ideal write to do list? Can you share an example
- How do you manage your energy Vs. Your ambition (i.e. multiplicity of projects you want to do) ?
- How do you prioritise your three main things to do when you have loads more to do?
