It depends on the day. As a teacher, I write a lot of tasks in my to-do list. I prioritize my items, and then I start with the most important and work my way down. I don't always get to everything, but at least the most important tasks get done. The rest can wait for the next day or the weekend.
At most, seven. Any more and I feel overwhelmed but I do keep a list of less immediate things to do on days that aren't too busy.
- How do you prioritise things on your to do list?
- What happens when you don’t have anything to do?
- Share your to do list templates/techniques
- How can I effectively stick to my to do list?
- What do you do when you don’t complete everything on your to do list? How do you not feel defeated?
- What to do items can you make into routines or habits instead?

- How far should I scale back my expectations when I fail? What if I fail every time for the rest of my life?
- How do you make time for yourself with 5 kids and a husband who works 12-14 hours a day?
