usuall I write on the sticky note and put at a place where I can easily see it. Always go back to the list and tick off once you've done that one activity so that you will keep updated things you should do next.
- The past few days I’ve had the same couple of things on my to do list which don’t end up getting done. How do you handle it when you’re not able to complete everything on your list?
- Do you think longer to-do lists are better? Or shorter ones?
- What is the best time for you to write your to-do and why?
- Where do you write your to-do list?
- How do you keep up your habits when on vacation?
When I first started making to do lists I made sure everything on it was attainable, nessisary, and in line with my goals. Keep your to-do list with you. It's always by my side so when I get distracted from my task I check with my to-do list to get back on track. This doesn't mean you have to be a slave to it, just make sure you're being productive and getting what needs to be done. You may also have other bad habits that are making you forget the tasks you want to get done, such as social media or video games, and to overcome that you can do one of three things: Increase self discipline, limit or set a specific time for them, or delete them entirely (which was all that seemed to work on my case).
I make sure to never put my notebook away. I leave it open on my desk where I can see it every morning. That way I see it immediately and remember to do it. That’s just how I do it though. You could put it right next to the water on a night stand as well. Drink the water and write the to do list right when you wake up. I hope that helps a little.
The 3 steps are quite easy to remember. And if I don’t succeed in performing them one day, I just move it to meh next. I use a physical book to write down my lists.
I use the Reminder App on my phone and have an alarm set for a specific time each day. I set this reminder alarm the night before while setting my wake up alarm, so I don't forget.
I have a regular calendar item to review and schedule to dos every Sunday. It’s my planning for the next week.
Using that time I check off what I have done, organise todos that are yet to be categorized and schedule time over the next week for specific focus areas.
It’s best to work my planner as part of my AM routine – after Meds and cup of water on rising but but before Exercise routine. Also check all open collections. TBD is the best time for journaling: AM / start of day or PM/end of day
A reminder alarm is a good first step. Also continually revisiting the list to make it more interesting and applicable to what you want to achieve with the time and energy you have will increase your familiarity with the list and ensure that it becomes part of your subconscious. Once it’s in your subconscious, it’s part of you…
- Do you write fun things too? Like eat ice cream.
- How do you manage tracking tasks that are both short and long term?
- How can I be more forgiving towards myself if I don’t get round to doing all the tasks I set out to complete?
- What do you do to avoid procrastination?
- How do you stay focused with exercising every day even when your whole body is sore because of the said exercise?
- Do you write your to-do list before bed or after waking up? Which once yields a longer list? Which yields more progress and completions?
- How do you remember your tasks and force yourself to check up on them in your to-do list?
- How do you prioritise your tasks? What do you consider most important?
- How should I write my to-do list?
- Sometimes I still tend to think about too many things I have to get done and I would write them out in a list. Yet I still have trouble prioritizing them and sticking to the 3 most important ones. How do I get rid of this overwhelming feeling?
