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 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??
