I just jump on todoist and write everything out and reflect on it as a whole and redistribute it over the next coming days, by doing it daily I’m always aware of my workload and what I have coming up and how I want to prioritise my days
- How can I realistically write my to-do lists? I am keeping them grounded but lately I am not able to everything on them. Especially deep work.
- How do you set up your to-do list and what items do not make the cut?
- What if Todo list gets overwhelmingly large and undone. Do you still smile and think you will still survive?
- How should I prioritize my to-do list?
- What’s a good daily, weekly and monthly organization system that works best for you?
I only think about the day ahead and what I must do and that's all I write. Tomorrow will come soon enough and I'll think about it then
I do a "brain dump" list and then break it down. Projects get scheduled (paint kids' bedrooms.–> April), then break those into the smaller tasks required. Next I look at the next week and decide what's realistic. Then move must get done (e.g., grocery shopping) and a few "needs" for larger projects (e.g. buy paint) to the coming week's to do list. Then move tasks to specific days (scheduling time blocks if that makes sense). Then for the day, prioritize 1, 2, and 3 on what would make the day a success if nothing else gets done.
That’s how I start. Just brain dump everything on a piece of paper. Then I go back and categorize the tasks either by type (cleaning) or importance (do now, later), then break it down even further within those categories. It takes longer but dealing with them in chunks is much easier than a huge list
I write them in point form from most important to least. Then tick them off with a marker when it’s complete. It may take a week or month to accomplish this list but when I see all the ticks it makes me feel successful
- Do you keep your work and your personal to-do lists separate?
- What are some small habits you are improving or working on? For example putting sandals on in the morning is one of mine. Another is drinking olive oil in the morning. What small ways have you come up with to improve your routines even just by 1%?
- How do you write it? Do you elaborate or just main points?
- How do you get strength and motivation to do even the hardest task?
- How do you keep yourself from adding in more and more new habits too quickly?
- How in depth do your To Do lists end up being?
- Does anyone use Bullet Journeling or another similar method? If so, do you find it helpful or better to keep things simple?
- Do you use the Bullet Journal method?
- Do you write your to dos for the day the morning of or the night before? Do you write each days to do at the beginning of the week?
- Do you feel fabulous?
