To-do lists should be made to a set timeframe. That is, you should put as much on it as you can finish in the time allowed. A monthlong to-do has more items than an afternoon. You will inevitably need practice to figure out what times out well. That’s okay! It’s like learning a complex dance move making the right to-do.
Adri O Q.
I feel like I should put EVERY SINGLE THING. It helps me feel better checking off minuscule tasks due to my crippling anxiety
As many things as you want, although it is important to note not to put to many things on there, as you don’t want to overwhelm yourself with unrealistic views of what you can fit into a day
I often put too much on the list, and end up biting off more than I can chew, and inevitably becoming inert with the level of demands I have listed for myself. I’m learning to prioritise and make my lists shorter and more manageable.
- How could I effectively use my time without laziness
- I need this to be so simple. And struggle to now what to include and what to leave out. Too basic and they seem pointless. Too detailed and they seem to take up too much time I could be focusing on other things… any suggestions on how to prioritise and discriminate between tasks to include and task to accept as given.
- Do you write the small and mundane tasks like cook, go for a walk etc on your list?
- What do you include in your most basic routines- what is something that simply must be done no matter what?
- Do you write only a few tasks on your to do list, or do you write everything that you have to do and then pick the top three or so to get done today? I’m never sure which approach is most effective.
- Do you check and adjust your to do list throughout the day? How do you remember?
- Do you ever feel like you write to much stuff to do for one day?
- Do you write down your routines too or skip them since they are ‘routines’?
- Which order do you accomplish your tasks? Due date? Importance? Fun making it?
- what are some things you always put on your to do? do you find that having the same activity at the same space everyday makes you more likely or less likely to actually do it??
