- How do you move forward when the past grabs you and wants to return you to your old ways or stop growing because you don’t believe in yourself just yet?
- Do you limit for number of items? Or put everything down? Perhaps also have a master to do list? How do you manage the bottomless to do list?
- How do you reinforce good habits?
- Do you use a notebook, bullet journal, scrap paper, phone, tablet or something else for your lists? If you’ve tried several, what has worked best for you?
- I’d like to know how many to-dos should I write and make it be more reasonable and can be done efficiently.
An advisor told me, among other things, to look at my to do list and think, how much and what MUST be done today? If it can wait a day, remove it. Look at the long haul and your energy level and what you need to do to take care of yourself.
Then cut out everything that isn't necessary. Leave it on a separate list. Maybe later you can delegate it or choose to do it as things change.
Lists are not military orders. They're helpful reminders and guides. You can question them, change them, sort them differently. Think, on rough days, what MUST be done today? And do it. You still have tomorrow to deal with the rest. In life, you must treat yourself with loving kindness and that includes patience with your limitations.
When you want something to the utmost, make the extra energy and effort to do it as a MUST do, of course. But learn to forgive yourself if you can't do it all and all at once. The great person carries compassion, and that begins with compassion for yourself before you can understand how to give it to others.
- Do you keep your work and your personal to-do lists separate?

- How do you write it? Do you elaborate or just main points?
- How do you get strength and motivation to do even the hardest task?
- How do you keep yourself from adding in more and more new habits too quickly?
- How in depth do your To Do lists end up being?
- Does anyone use Bullet Journeling or another similar method? If so, do you find it helpful or better to keep things simple?
