I think it’s something in the middle. Too detailed lists never come true and I spend too much time on them and end up being anxious. Key points to remember are nice when the tasks are straightforward. But they rarely are, so at least some details are necessary
I like to do two lists; the key most important things that I need to get done, and then another list that’s more of an agenda with everything on it. This means my day is planned out with all the little things that I want to do and might easily forget (and helps with time management!) and gives a timeline of the day, but also makes it easier to keep focused and prioritise the most important tasks.
Great question. The answer varies depending on what you are trying to accomplish with your to-do list. For example instead of saying finish an assignment or clean, be More specific. For example clean the bedroom, or read chapter/ page from (book). If the task requires running an errand, write down the name of the place. I hope this helps. In conclusion be specific and detailed with your list, you will follow it and feel accomplished. Good luck!
I only put key points down because if I get hung up on details it tends to paralyze me. It causes me anxiety. The key for me is just a prompt to get me started.
- 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?
- On your to do list, you always make first the most important to do? I always tend to run away
