Breaking down goals and objectives into subgoals and smaller parts, which individually feel like an aspect of the goal is taken care of, e.g. cleaning the house, divide into rooms, or even job type (dusting, mopping, vacuuming, etc)
I use my Buller Journal to write down all my task, and now I started set priorities to all my task. Task with the highest prio are usually related with my quaterly goals, so I know that by doing them I get closer to my finish my goals.
First I just write everything that I have to do that comes to my mind. Then, I separate what takes less than 5 minutes (-) from the other activities (+). After that, I take the 2 lists and determine what is urgent (A) and what is important (B) from the rest (C). Taking a look at the urgent list, I highlight what is also important (AB). The important and urgent things that takes less than 5 minutes to be done (AB-) are to be done first. Then, I do the important things that take less than 5 minutes to be done (B-), followed by the urgent things that take less than 5 minutes to be done (A-). After that, I prioritize the urgent and important things that needs to be done and takes longer than 5 minutes (AB+), followed by the important things (B+), and then the urgent ones (A+). I also make sure that the things that needs to be done are displayed in my calendar according to the time they will take me to do, and the day they are to be done. This way I have a visual idea of my week and time (I use Cooor Block Calendar for that).
Often I write down everything I want to do once a week at the start of the week (Sunday for me), then spend a little time arranging it by how hard it will be and how soon it needs done, and if any of it is time limited (is it a call I can only do in work hours, for example?). This helps me spot things that aren’t that important, and what tasks will take the most time, and if any need to happen certain days. Then I keep this big list around- trying not to add to it- and pull three tasks out a day to do! After those, if I’m up for it, I look at more tasks one by one. The next week I start a new list and see if any tasks from the old one need to come over, or if actually it turns out they didn’t need fussing over after all.
- Do you keep your work and your personal to-do lists separate?
- What are some small habits you are improving or working on? For example putting sandals on in the morning is one of mine. Another is drinking olive oil in the morning. What small ways have you come up with to improve your routines even just by 1%?
- How do you write it? Do you elaborate or just main points?
- How do you get strength and motivation to do even the hardest task?
- How do you keep yourself from adding in more and more new habits too quickly?
- How in depth do your To Do lists end up being?
- Does anyone use Bullet Journeling or another similar method? If so, do you find it helpful or better to keep things simple?
- Do you use the Bullet Journal method?
- Do you write your to dos for the day the morning of or the night before? Do you write each days to do at the beginning of the week?
- Do you feel fabulous?
