I try to keep it down to three or four, and then I put a timeframe next to each one. It’s hard, because I’m in the mindset that everything is of equal importance, but my procrastination shows me it’s not true! Do what’s urgent and important to your goals first.
- I have a lot of goals for a day. I need to keep another list of goals for the week or month. Do you have a similar problem? How do you organize your tasks?
- Should I use digital notebook or real notebook?
- I struggle with chronic ADHD and even with treatment can’t focus on doing things in an orderly fashion. How can I stay on task?
- How long does it usually take you to write down your to-do list ?
- Which method do you have to migrate tasks to the next day, without writing them multiple times?
I have an electronic todo list. I organize them by type and by today, tomorrow, this week, next week and this month and on hold. I can have as many as there is to think about and do. However, I always pick the top three todos for today . Usually they are important but not urgent.
Make your to do list a list of things you know you have the time to accomplish in the day and maybe make a separate list of “stretch” things you would like to accomplish if you had more hours in the day. That way you set realistic expectations for yourself but still get to joy everything down that you need to do.
I try and limit to around three. Never more than 5. If I have 5 I find which ones I don't have to have done by tomorrow and then move them. I also find it helpful to write down the steps if I am finding them overwhelming.
- 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 do you balance making your to do list both feasible and inspiring? (If my to do list is only things I know I can get done in a day it is too simple and makes me not feel like I will achieve the things I want to
- I’m interested to know how many todo lists others have
- How far should I scale back my expectations when I fail? What if I fail every time for the rest of my life?
- How many items do you write in your To-do?
- How do you make time for yourself with 5 kids and a husband who works 12-14 hours a day?
