Tricky. I’m not good at planning but I write a list. Always helps and I tick things off which makes me feel like I’ve achieved things
24 hours is all you have so the only approach is to be productive. I think the practice of picking the top three items each day is key to focus, and focus is the most important aspect of being productive.
When I had exams while working full time, I would figure out what I needed to study, then I would calculate the number of days I had left to study. I would divide what I had to study by the number of days I had left to study before the exam.
I make sure to split my time up so that I'm not overly focused on one thing. This way, I can put a little time into each one of my responsibilities.
- 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??
