My most important priority is ALWAYS my 9 yr old. I then prioritize those things which will most enrich my life. I also weigh potential consequences of not getting something done. Sometimes I miss the mark so I forgive myself, make the necessary adjustments and move forward. Always forward.
- Are your to-do Lists more than 3 items? And if so, are they all dealing with the same subject? As in, do all 3 have to deal with work, or does it have a mix of home, work, and social? Which do you find easiest to follow through on?
- Please, could you recommend the best way of organizing my days, weeks, months?
- What is the best time to write my to do list? I am really busy with my college.
- Writing a ToDo is easy. Following up on it seems really difficult to me even using the ABC rule. How do you *do* it?
- What kind of tasks do you write in your to-do list? Do you include basic morning habits such as drinking water, exercising? Thanks

What has to be done immediately and or effects someone else. What has to be completed in one hour, two hours, three hours, etc. remove anything that can be completed tomorrow.
I have so many things I need to do that I’m working on a deadline basis. Eventually I will be able to get ahead of my crisis mode and be able to plan on advance what my most important tasks are. I’m getting closer to being able to just maintain my paperwork and budgets so I can concentrate on making more sales.
There's an exercise that you can do. I believe it's called the Eisenhower Matrix. Very helpful in this case to determine just how important tasks are.
I like to have a plan at the start of a project or a clear job description at the start of a job and reference that at points of confusion! Sometimes it's easy to get sidelined by a timesuck that isn't working towards an overall objective so this is quite a handy process to check that. Obviously there's always extceptions to the rule. Ultimately conversations, asking questions and sharing insights help to drill down to the right priorities. It's not always easy to see them on your own.
It is simple. Time factor need to be taken into consideration. Which one has a deadline in the vicinity. And also to be considered is what is more important to you. These two factors might help us reign in prioritising.
- Do you write fun things too? Like eat ice cream.
- How do you manage tracking tasks that are both short and long term?
- How can I be more forgiving towards myself if I don’t get round to doing all the tasks I set out to complete?
- What do you do to avoid procrastination?
- How do you stay focused with exercising every day even when your whole body is sore because of the said exercise?
- Do you write your to-do list before bed or after waking up? Which once yields a longer list? Which yields more progress and completions?
- How do you remember your tasks and force yourself to check up on them in your to-do list?
- How do you prioritise your tasks? What do you consider most important?
- How should I write my to-do list?
- Sometimes I still tend to think about too many things I have to get done and I would write them out in a list. Yet I still have trouble prioritizing them and sticking to the 3 most important ones. How do I get rid of this overwhelming feeling?
