Depends on how much control you have over when they happen! I sometimes have scheduled things at 6am with training clients, so I’ll just push some of my morning tasks to after that. Control what you can, adjust around what you can’t.
When we have a scheduled meeting, I like to make sure that I know about it in advance and get the most important things I need to do done before the meeting. This way, I am not having to stay later after work to finish the necessary things and I just pick up with the rest the next day or when I am free. I know I can’t do everything at once.
Honestly, this is a constant struggle daily for me and it leaves me working later in the evenings and heading in to the office earlier than I would like.
I don’t feel like that meeting is as important as my other tasks so I tend to not take it as seriously. I take it as something that I HAVE to do rather than something I GET to do.
- 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) ?
- How do you prioritise your three main things to do when you have loads more to do?
