What I do is in the evening before bed write down all things I would like to do the next day. Then in the morning I choose the top three and put them in priority order. I do my best to finish those three, but life is all about change. If something else becomes more important or excites me more, I may chose that over one of the three things I picked. I allso have the list from the night before and can pull things fromit in little bits of time between bigger things.
Today it was my intention to tidy the bedroom and unload, reload and run the dishwasher. However, tidying the bedroom took longer than expected and I really wanted it done. So I used all my energy for the day on that. I added in a few tasks afterwards from my list that were more sedentary (emails and such). But I have a lovely clean bedroom now and it makes me happy.
I don’t think of to do lists as rigid things any more… because I did that for years and all I got was upset that I couldn’t finish them. This works for me. There is always more I’d like to do than I can do. Good luck.
- I feel im just writing and repeating my to do everyday.. is that ok ? 😄. Or should i think to do something new
- 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?
