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.
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
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
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
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
- do you often empty your to do list?
- I’m a freak when it comes to organizing and etc. but since I started my own company. I always seem to have so many things to get done which was expected but a to do list becomes so overwhelming when I have a ridiculous amount of things to get done. Does anyone else have the same issue?
- Do you ever find that you’ve put more on your to-do than you can handle? What do you do when that happens?
- What’s a main reoccurring thing on your to do list?
- Do you prefer handwritten to do lists or digital ones?
- Which one do you think is more effective? A written to do list or through an apps to do list?
- How do you get started on a task when you’re not motivated?
- Yeah what do you think would be my best option to writing a to do list easiest to hardest longest to shortest how do you do yours and how does it help you
- Do you give your to-dos a time frame or exact time to do them at? Or do you allow yourself more flexibility?
- How can I write the more efficient to-do list?
