Ticking things off my to do list one by one makes me feel accomplished. It helps me visualise my productivity throughout the day. And feel motivated to get things done
First you shouldn’t have any notifications on your cell phone. It’s not necessary to have it on if you receive a lot of stuff all the time. So between one and other task of your to do list, you check your phone (but reserve a period of time like 20 min or so and go back to the to do list). That’s how. Remember that messages, emails, calls are other people’s need, not yours.
- How do you avoid from having the habit of pushing stuff for the next day?
- I have so many things to do in a day, I am a mother, a student, I have a job, exercise. I really can’t imagine narrowing a day’s to-do list to just three items. How can this be done?
- How do you choose how to group and order your tasks so they’re not as overwhelming?
- On your to do list, you always make first the most important to do? I always tend to run away
- Is it bad if I do not accomplish all the tasks in my to do list?
- How far in advance do you put tasks on your to do list? I am a big procrastinator and if I see something on my to do list that’s not due for a while I tend to just ignore it. Any suggestions on how to solve this?
- How far ahead should one write their list.. i.e. daily, weekly or monthly?
- Is it any way to make do to list more creative but still keep them simple?
- What strategies do you use to prioritize & organize “to do now” vs “to do later” tasks?
- How to make sure you stick to your list when something else that you need to finish first just popped out?
