Bells and whistles apps become toys for me and then I dump them because it takes too long to use them. This has been good so far.
Also I just dump to do's in it as I think of them.
At night I review the list to update it, and in the morning I pick my top 3.
Hope this helps!
It's important to include time to rest, like a daily power nap, that will replenish your energy. Calm app has a great one that wakes you with birds singing. It's also good, even if you can't sleep, to just lie down and rest/relax for 20 to 30 minutes. You can use soothing music or total silence.
The rest helps me sit up and finish priorities still left.
I go through my task list and see what must be done that day. A wise person once told me, and she said she did this, to look at the day's list and see the one thing that must be done that day and put the others off if you must. Don't feel guilt or like a failure.
When you're able to, then do all three priorities. A friend who is a successful executive said do one big thing, one medium thing, and then one little thing. If you can do more, great! But again, if not, no worries.
- 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??
