If it's your to do list you can do that in your laptop and then split the page into 2 columns. I draw a box around the second column (on right) and print it out.
I start with a regular Word monthly calendar where I list all to do's and bold to prioritize for that day (or change the color). Then in a separate document, weekly (Monday through Sunday) I make a 2 column document and draw a blank box around the blank right hand column.
Then I print and staple it. Later I put it in a 3 ring binder. I carry 2 different color pens (green and purple or blue) plus a highlighter and carry the weekly calendar.
In there, I take notes on the Word list on left and write achievements, accomplishments, what happened on the right.
You can also buy a calendar. I like the ability and flexibility of Word because I can insert journal pages between calendar pages.
Alternatively you can buy a notepad, ideally one that means something to you, or one you bought from a special place. Label the notepads and put them somewhere meaningful.
You could also voice record them and save them as computer files. Not as sentimental, but they’ll remain forever
- 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??
