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 could I effectively use my time without laziness
- I need this to be so simple. And struggle to now what to include and what to leave out. Too basic and they seem pointless. Too detailed and they seem to take up too much time I could be focusing on other things… any suggestions on how to prioritise and discriminate between tasks to include and task to accept as given.
- Do you write the small and mundane tasks like cook, go for a walk etc on your list?
- What do you include in your most basic routines- what is something that simply must be done no matter what?
- Do you write only a few tasks on your to do list, or do you write everything that you have to do and then pick the top three or so to get done today? I’m never sure which approach is most effective.
- Do you check and adjust your to do list throughout the day? How do you remember?
- Do you ever feel like you write to much stuff to do for one day?
- Do you write down your routines too or skip them since they are ‘routines’?
- Which order do you accomplish your tasks? Due date? Importance? Fun making it?
- what are some things you always put on your to do? do you find that having the same activity at the same space everyday makes you more likely or less likely to actually do it??
