I have trouble with following the order of tasks on my lists. This causes me to rewrite/reorder things multiple times, and causes the list-making to become more overwhelming and tedious. I haven’t figured out how to stick to what I’ve written down. I have a grasp on prioritization, I just don’t follow it once it’s written. I’ve found this can make me abandon lists altogether, and that kind of negates the point of writing it at all! What helps you stick to the order of a list you’ve written?

Hi! I don't usually follow the order in which I write the list. I just tick things off as I do them, and I don't reorder it. I find that that prompts me to sort of fill in the gaps of the list and motivates me more! A nice, orderly list is great, but if we give ourselves a break and tick things off as we can, that's an amazing feat in itself! 😊😊👍🏻

Most simply, I leave my to-do list someplace I pass frequently so I keep seeing it throughout the day. I also rewrite unfinished tasks in the evening as the first items on the next day's list; a bit of self-guilt-tripping. Lol.

I find this tough too. You could use this matrix. Four boxes. One dimension is urgency, one is importance. Categorise as Urgent/Important, Urgent/Not Important, Important/Not Urgent and Not Important/Not Urgent. Here’s a link https://www.groupmap.com/map-templates/urgent-important-matrix/
