It is important also that you don’t have a huge list everyday. Get 3-5 things done on a daily basis and you will be just fine.
(1) Don’t forget to plan time in your day for fun. Why? Because it gives you permission to HAVE FUN and something to look forward to later. If you complete the tasks you have for the day, then that’s an award in it itself! Congratulate yourself and celebrate this win by enjoying your scheduled 30 minutes or 1 hour of fun time, guilt free!
(2) Now, in situations in which you want to be proactive, retrain your brain this way. “If I plan to get these tasks done today, then I can plan for more fun time tomorrow!” (i.e. If I go ahead and do my monthly budget today, then that gives me 2 hours of fun time tomorrow, and I can binge out on my favorite TV show!”)
- 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??
