When it comes to parties, I think breaking down tasks and being super prepared is important. The more days over which you can spread the work, the better. For example, I COULD get ingredients for, make, chill, and decorate a cake all in the same day I'm going to serve it… but I'd probably sacrifice a lot of other tasks to get there. Being organized and practicing foresight are key. And don't be afraid to delegate tasks to others.
I think this question is less addressing time off, but I do want to say a few words. When you make your own schedule, it's important to maintain consistency, if possible, and a bare minimum of foresight if not! Plan backward from deadlines and things that HAVE to get done.
Oh, and good luck 🙂 you've got this!
I recognize that I get less done this way, but the bowl of my mind must be empty, before I can refill it.
- 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?
- How to make a to do list more interesting?
- time management? How to be more effective with time? I am a person who cares a lot about details, and in my work, I tend to refine concepts a lot. I find myself time swept often and offset my to do’s.
- How can I do a ideal write to do list? Can you share an example
- How do you manage your energy Vs. Your ambition (i.e. multiplicity of projects you want to do) ?
