From your point of view, what is the best to-do list format?

I separate my list into different types of tasks (to clean, to fix, to cook, to write, to read) and then rewrite out my 3-5 most pressing items. I then try to make a rough timeline of these tasks.

I write down everything that needs to be done in the day. I then write on a separate list, the things that need to be done outside my house, like appointments, errands, school runs, etc. I put them in order, first by any relevant time, then by location, to minimize running around all over the place. At this point I go back to what was left on the first list and delegate if needed and possible. If I have time before leaving my house, I will do some or all of the items on my to-do list, making sure time sensitive or important things get done first. Otherwise, my to-do list will be completed once I’m done all my appointments and errands. It’s important to know that not every to-do list gets completed. Some things get pushed till the next day or even longer in some cases.
