Always be realistic about your to do list, don’t have too many things on it, and then don’t forget to do the hardest and most important things first
The focus should be on the most important tasks that need to be completed first, regardless of whether is is exciting or not or how many things are there on the to do list.
Break things down into smaller chunks and prioritize. So if brushing your teeth is a task, break it down into three – 1) turn the water on 2) squeeze the toothpaste 3) brush your teeth.
If its a big task, say washing windows, i break it up over a few days and get it done early. If its a smaller task i try and pick one or 2 a day and do it when in between other things, or when i am stuck at home waiting for something else. I savor the pleasure of crosding it off the list. I try and tale care of lots of things proactively . Life is so much easier that way.
