10,000 steps – Bronze
30 mins cardio – Silver
30 mins weight – Gold
20 mins yoga – Platinum
This way I can always achieve something and have something to strive for. At the moment I am between silver & gold as I’ll do 2 or 3 of these activities. I’m aiming at the moment to get 5 gold days in a row.
1. Put the list in order what you are going to do when…
For example your probably going go to work/school before you come home and start to make dinner!
2. Don't bite off more then you can chew…
My trick for this on is puting a star by all the things that are so important that they should be my priorities!
3. Don't forget to add something that you really WANT to do…
Maybe put it in the middle or towards the end so that you're a bit more motivated!
1) Visualise your day beforehand – take a moment to view the highlights of the day ahead of you – will you go grocery shopping? Will you prepare for an exam? This'll help you cover the main areas of the day.
2) Remember any small tasks you missed out – Our mind tends to focus more on the big picture rather than the small tasks that are equally as important. Were you supposed to wish your mom on your birthday? Were you supposed to go for a jog? Small tasks that have value must be listed as well.
3) Write the tasks in simple words – For example, you're supposed to do homework. Instead of writing "complete thesis of …" Simply write do your homework. Your mind gets eased at the simplicity and won't stress as much. This is a personal preference of mine, but if you prefer to write it detailed, it completely depends upon your choice.
Example. Get struts for my car.
I break it down into:
*Look for a local mechanic online or in a phone book.
*Choose two or three from my findings and contact them for prices and any questions I may have.
*Compare mechanics with pricing, reputation, and or word of mouth/rating online.
*Choose one mechanic from the two or three
*Set up an appointment with the mechanic.
*Take my car to the mechanic for the repairs.

- How do you organize your to-dos to not forget anything when you work on different projects parallelly at the same time?
- What is a good todo list?
- What should I put on my to do list? Like full on everything or just the main things I need to get done? How detailed is my question.
- How do you keep on track when having “a bad day or week “?
- How do you write your to do list?
- How do you decide what to put on your to do list? Should I drop off the smaller tasks and leave it for only the larger, more time consuming ones?
- How do you avoid from having the habit of pushing stuff for the next day?
- I have so many things to do in a day, I am a mother, a student, I have a job, exercise. I really can’t imagine narrowing a day’s to-do list to just three items. How can this be done?
- How do you choose how to group and order your tasks so they’re not as overwhelming?
