No. Only my 3 most important tasks go on my to do list. I may have sub lists for like groceries or prep for something but i try to keep it manageable
I don't include my routines in my to do list. To me, the routine should become something you don't need to really think about after a bit. Though it is important to list our your routine to give yourself enough time for it, I wouldn't do it every day. I add anything to my to do list that needs to get done that I don't want to forget.
I vary. I'm established in most routines (clean myself, wash clothes, do dishes etc) so adding these to a to do list makes it dauntingly long. I am specific in some things- what workout I want to accomplish that day, how many chapters of learning I want to do and what room I want to clean deeply and then I have a separate list of long term goals that I can choose to do between daily routines if I have time.
Keep it seperate! I get overwhelmed easily when I see a big amount of items. I believe the app I use Todoist has a free membership, so I'm able to keep all upcoming and reoccurring dates there while using my physical notebooks to focus on today, then maybe following days, so I can have sharper focus and an idea of priorities. I sometimes write lists over and over and over, so using this system personally helps me. After a broader list, I also like going to a different page and building an outline of subtasks. Overall goal is to clean your home? Project 1 can be "clean bathroom", which be can be checked off after the subtasks like clean toilet, clean shower, mini actions are completed. It definitely makes it more realistic and manageable for me.
- 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??
