The meetings are often non-negotiable, so I schedule these at the top of my daily to do list. Then I try to isolate the critical issues that I have to work on. I try to separate these into short and deep work, so that if I have few minutes between meetings, I can choose something from the short pile. If I have a day packed with meetings, I acknowledge up front that I will not be likely to cross anything off of the deep work list.
Just get motivated. Just do your adult life responsibilities. You just go through life with responsibilities. You just have to put your mind to the test and just do it. Try to make it fun while you do your responsibilities. Just do your best.
- 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??
