How many tasks do you put on your to-do list per day?

Lice P.
At least 3 things. Even simple tasks. Or thing that are not chores, but enjoyable things, for example reading a few pages of a new, entertaining book. Or going on a walk, exercising for 20 minutes, etc. It doesn't have to be always big, overwhelming tasks.

Keilahna Z.
I have 3 separate to do lists for each day. I have one dedicated to school which helps me to keep track of assignments, meetings, and important tasks for the day. The number of tasks on this to do list changes and depends on what all I have going on that week. The second to do list is a self care one which helps remind me to take care of myself and my needs amongst the chaos of college. That ranges from 6-15 tasks, but some of these tasks are just reminders to brush my teeth or take my meds in time. The final to do list is for chores and errands, and the number of tasks depends on the day and what I have going on that week. However, these aren’t set in stone. The only tasks that I make sure I absolutely get done are assignments and meetings. Everything else is an option for if I find free time or if I get bored and can’t figure out what to do.

Anywhere from 3-7. It all depends on how much I have to do that day, and what is prioritized. I try to get them all completed in a day, but don't be afraid to pace yourself. Stretch them out over the whole day instead of cramming them into one little timeframe. Do some in the morning, some in the afternoon, and some in the evening before bed.

I usually put about 10 task on my to do list everyday and on my bad days I usually just put down 1 or 2 and try and focus on my mental health and family for that day

Xiomara Z.
I put all the tasks I can possibly think if that need to be completed. I only commit to one. If I have more energy, I continue down the list, buy I consider myself accomplished if I get one thing done.

Harmen F.
A valid question. I manage multiple projectd during the day. Most of these projects have their own lists, which often are just steps to take. So I don't actually write down most of my list, I just follow the steps described by the projects.

Sami J.
I usually have 1 or 2 major tasks that I HAVE to do and then 2 or 3 tasks that I aim to do and 1 or 2 other tasks that Might be done.

Zuleica F.
I put task as per my schedule like 1st drink warm water 2nd workout 3rd cold bath 4th breakfast 5th go to clg 6th play basketball 7th get freshed and relax 8th study 9th dinar 10th for 1km walk and then last one is to meditate and go for bed.

Mangesh N.
At least 20. Most of which are repetitive in nature. Hence it seems as if i am accomplishing nothing. However; gives me a good understanding of what all I am supposed to do.

Plamena N.
I currently ( in my second week of the year, which is the second week that I’ve been using Fabulous ) have two very easily archiving goals on my mornings routine, three on my daily/ afternoon routine, that are also very basic and easy, and lastly in my night routine I have two goals that help me relax before I go to bed ( for examples, “unplug and disconnect” right before I go to sleep, helps me relax, clear my mind and get ready to rest ) My point here is that It’s easier to archive something and make progress step by step, starting easy and SMALL… Because if you feel overwhelmed or struggle with completing everything that you have set for the day, at the begging, a progress will be harder.

Lauren O.
It varies, but I generally try to put 3-6 things. If I’m feeling unmotivated, I put easier tasks on my to-do list like making lunch. If it’s a long list, I try prioritise things so the ones that need to be done get done sooner and the others can move to the following day.

Sophie U.
I put atleast a minimum of 2-3 things to start with, like simple chores around the house. If I need to add more it's definitely for school.

Marina O.
It depends of the day/week and the area I need to focus. As an example, if I have to do a daily cleaning in the kitchen, I usually write down 5-6 basic tasks to do, the essential and urgent. With that I'm able to do other things and don't feel anxious.

Dennis N.
Hii, 8 – 9 but usually I don't count I just think in the things I want to do! Usually I put my meals, my yoga, my time with a love one, if I want to read or write something and etc. Think with your heart and your mind to see what's better for you!

Jordan J.
I don't have a set amount. But I do try to take into consideration if it's possible or even reasonable to complete so many within my particular day. For example I work from 9-2 but I'm away from the house from 7:30-3:30. I have to cook dinner and have cook and serve dinner for my family and exercise. So during the work week I have about only 4 hours spread over my day to complete my tasks, but still needing down time. So, if the tasks take longer than 2-3 hours to complete, I have over filled my to-do list. Figure out what your allotted time frame is after considering your daily responsibilities, and how your to do list can fit into your day to day

Ala Des E.
my to-do lists can get pretty long for two reasons:
1. I like to put down everything that I need to action. Even things like going to the gym or doing house work, alongside things I need to do for university, etc. When I get to tick off those boxes, it gives me a great sense of accomplishment, making me happier and more productive.
2. I always prioritise my list, so that tasks that are the most urgent and pressing get done first. There is always tomorrow to finish off what doesn’t get done, but knowing what needs doing is the first step to getting it done.

Jacob Y.
I usually think about the things I need to get done by the day. Then I classified them in most important and urgent ones to the less important and urgent ones, that way I can prioritize the important and urgent ones to get done first. So, in short I put more or less, four to five tasks per day 🙂

Tiffany P.
I'll try to usually do three but then the inner power and he says go ahead and do seven. It on a really good day I get three tasks done usually.

Guterre Y.
Minimum is 5. Depending on my energy levels could be up to 20. Average is about 10. But I break everything down into baby steps

Olivia N.
As a minimum I try to get at least 3 productive, quantitative things. Then I add a few goals for myself that go towards my self care. So in total about 3-6 things on my to-do list

Rowayda L.
One or two important tasks per day so i must do these tasks but I add more tasks maybe reaching 7 or 8 tasks per day
cuz i put tasks for each aspect of life and some of my tasks are everyday tasks like washing dishes.

Delmiro Y.
Depends on a day, but it’s usually 5-10 tasks. Some big tasks are having subtasks. This way I appreciate every small progress and keep it achievable without losing motivation

Roswita G.
Personally, I write down everything that's due in the next month or so and categorise it by how urgent it is. Group A is for work due that same day or in the next few days, Group B is for work due later on but is long to do so it must be started earlier, and Group C is for work that is not due any time soon and is not difficult to do.

I do my best to get whatever is in Group A done and break it up with Group B & C work along with breaks to make it less tedious. How much I do depends on what I need to do and how much motivation I have at the given time.

Keshav F.
I usually put a lot of tasks on my tp do list, but in reality I follow only some of them or none of them throughout the day. I'm very poor in diligence and consistency so I can hardly keep up to the to do lists.I still try to do around 3 to 4 tasks on my to do list of 8-10 tasks each day, and I'm improving day by day.

Neelam A.
I usually only have 5 tasks on my list, the "must do" tasks. You only have x amount of time in a day. So adding more tasks just add extra pressure. But if you do have a longer task list, the tasks that you continually leave till last are either not important or difficult, so they should be tackled 1st thing in the morning or left off your list completely.

Adeodato P.
I always try to have a minimum of 4 tasks. However it all depends if my to do list is during the weekend or week days.
When creating a to do list it is important to don't put too much as it needs to be achievable. If I'm at work I know I only have my break and evening to make it happen. During the weekend I have the whole day. It's all about creating a realistic target.

Allison Y.
I try not to put too many but I always do. So my goal is to out stuff in the list I'd like to prirotize then I edit the list till it's functional. Then I work to not judge myself if I didn't finish everything.

Olivia R.
For those who struggle with the inability to "do": I usually try to do 3-5 things done everyday. I like to call my list "things to accomplish" because for someone like me it's hard to remember all the things you can do. Just because you can.

Kiara E.
Honestly, I put as many as I can think of. I will put a mark next to the top 3 I want to do right away or are most important. Whatever doesn't get finished gets transferred to the following day. I do this everyday. My list never runs out but it keeps me productive. I can then easily see what's being neglected, determine why, and make better use of my time. Plus sometime I forget things I need to do. So keeping it in the forefront of my mind is great! Lists are the best 💗☺️

Kaitlin Q.
I actually keep two to-do lists. A master and a "today" list. Every morning, I look at my master list and create the today list. Instead of just making a simple list, I make time frames. For example, my to-do list might look like this: 7-8a answer emails and create to-do list, 8-8:30 payroll, 8:30-9a prepare presentation, 9-12 present, 12-12:30 lunch, 12:30-1 answer more emails, 1-3:30 deep project work (w/ 15 min break) –side note, I do get specific here about what project I'm working on and how far I plan to get–, 3:30-4 clean off desk & go home!

Mia E.
I put as many things that I need or want to accomplish in that day. But I do the urgent ones first, so that I can make up the less important ones the next day if I run out of time.

Ava Q.
I generally put 2~3 tasks on my to-do list, because they are easier for me to follow and manage time to complete them throughout the day. If i do tasks more than 3, it create a bungle in my mind and i am unable to complete them on time. So i think it's better for me to follow and work for precise number of tasks.

Matthew U.
Probably about 2 a day. I tend to do basic things like Go shopping and collect xyz. I use my to do list to remind myself to do things I've been putting off which I know I can tick off eventually

Katrina Y.
I follow the 1,3,5 method. 1 must do(big task). 3 tasks that need to be done(medium tasks). And 5 nice to do(small tasks)

Debbie Ann C.
I put at least 3 things on my to do list. Then I try to have 3 things to complete in the week not daily so If I feel like I can do more that day, then I will do a bit off my weekly to do list.

Anoushka I.
I limit myself to a maximum of 2-3 major tasks on a per day basis. That way, I get to allot more time to a task rather than rushing through all of them. And along with them I add a few minimal recreational tasks like wash my hair, read a few pages of my current read, nap which allows me to get more items ticked off my list. So like this, even if I didn’t get all/majority of my major tasks I get the feeling of being productive and I don’t start overthinking because of the guilt. I time myself better the next day without the guilt buildup.

Harper N.
On the week days I usually put my school assignments or any appointments I have to go to. On the weekends I usually don’t put much.

Mikkel C.
The most essential tasks are up to 3 no more, the rest like eat,workout,shower,check on friends…really vary according to how much time i got left. Just be logical and do not overwhelm yourself. To-do lists are meant to simplify your life.

Godofredo Y.
Since I don’t use the premium, I use up to max as possible and se mental notes to carry out the day. But it would be a better catch if there were to be fove tasks set instead of four.

Jamie Z.
As many as I can – around 10 at least. I include small tasks because it's really satisfying being able to tick them off, and it motivates me to do other tasks on the list. "Brush teeth" and "wash face" are two different items even though I do them consistently at least twice a day and at the same time. It just makes me feel better about getting on with my day, and is especially helpful in depressive episodes

Aribert J.
It depends on the day. During the weekends I try to put as many chores as possible, whereas on weekdays I focus on studying and having a proper sleeping schedule.
