My therapist says that the best thing to do in this situation is assess how much time you can dedicate to these tasks, then divide up that time based on how time-consuming/important each task is – then, don’t go over your time limit for each task. Its better to make headway on everything than hyper-focus on one and still feel stressed about the others
I put everything aside and just focus on that high priority task. Because if it’s that important like a late school project then I’m gonna put it in front of everything else.
If you are really overwhelmed with with multiple priorities and firefighting I think it's best just to pick any small tasks and do those first it will give you a sense of completion. you can then really attack a priority list. I think asking questions will help guide a list of priorities. Asking why and looking for the consequences might help.
- How do you stay on schedule with your to do list?

- Do you think it is better to create my TODO list the evening before or in the morning?
- What app or software do you use to track your to do list?
- It’s sometimes hard for me to stay on task or sometimes I want to give up. With a To Do List, is it hard to stay committed to it? What keeps you going?
- What is your daily routine like?
- How do you plan out the times at which you complete your tasks? Do you find somedays don’t go as smoothly as others?
- I feel im just writing and repeating my to do everyday.. is that ok ? 😄. Or should i think to do something new
- How do you organize your to-dos to not forget anything when you work on different projects parallelly at the same time?
