I write everything down in a notebook. I cross the actions off as they are accomplished. Instead of trying to tackle everything every day, I look at my list and decide which are the most important to finish, and which are the most doable for that day. Then from there, I pick the top 3 to get done that day. If I have time to do more, I continue, crossing off as they are accomplished. I don’t want to set myself up for failure, so I just stick to 3 a day, to get done for sure. As I think of new things to do, I add them to my running list.
My reminder list has a facility to ‘view accomplished tasks’ if I want. To be honest I don’t usually bother for the smaller routine stuff. But if I accomplish something significant that I’m particularly pleased about or that was particularly challenging, I log it on my ‘happy feed’ which I do every night.
I have a bullet journal I made myselff and in it are for every day my appointments, my to do list, my moodtracker, Daily goals, gratitude tracker and also what i'm going to eat. Every mornig I check my appointments en fill in my to do list and goals (food I do every sunday for the whole weak). Than at the end of the dat I check out wat I've done of the to do list and of there is something open it Will be replaced to the next day. I alsof reflect on my dat and fill out my nood and were I am gratefull for that day.
I simply cross it off as I do them. I also use the moment I’m crossing something off as an opportunity to adjust the list. Sometimes accomplishing one thing leads to other things that have to be done.
- 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??
