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.
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
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.

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.
- Do you also put your daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly goals in a prioritized list and add them to a to do list as time allows?
- How have people found intermittent fasting?
- How do you track nested to-dos (like subtasks for bigger tasks)?
- How do you decide what to put on your To-Do list?
- I am finding it helpful to use one of the Fabulous App Mental/Thought Exercises- specifically one of the evening deep rest meditation exercises to help me go to sleep. But it doesn’t always work because I still have my iPhone with me in bed or near me. In fact, sometimes I don’t do the nighttime deep rest meditation at all and then I get caught up in watching on demand TV or something. Does anyone use the Audible to listen to a book to fall asleep or read their Kindle on regular basis to read and fall asleep? Any suggestions on how to develop a good evening habit to meditate, read, and fall asleep?
- How can I realistically write my to-do lists? I am keeping them grounded but lately I am not able to everything on them. Especially deep work.
- How do I reduce the number of things on my to-do list?
- How should I prioritize my to-do list?
- Do people add to their list throughout the day or write a complete list each morning and prioritise only those tasks? Sometimes I add to my list throughout the day and my initial goals are either shifted or reprioritised.
- What kind of tasks do you write in your to-do list? Do you include basic morning habits such as drinking water, exercising? Thanks
