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.
- Do you have a daily limit of To Do’s, in order to avoid a never ending list and encourage completion?
- Do you check things off that you are “going to do” but haven’t actually done yet?
- How long is your to do list?
- What you guys write in your to-do!main task or all tasks?
- Which habits have you taken out of your routine and what did you replace them with? And why?
- Do you prepare your to do list in the evening at day before or the in the morning on the day?
- What tools or apps, if any, do you use to manage your tasks and to do lists?
- Do you aim to complete your to-do list or only those items which you have classified are the most important?
- How many of your to do list tasks do you manage to check off at the end of the day? Did you ever manage to check it all?
- How do you keep on top of your daily tasks, and medium to long term actions you need to take? How do you prioritise them? How can I make a proven system and make into a habit?
