Try aiming for three or five, and then at least you know you’ve gotten your main tasks completed. I usually write tasks that are optional at the end so I know I can do those if I have spare time.
My personal answer would be max 3-5 per day (and depending on the tasks) starting out I wrote a mixture to of some very important tasks and some that weren’t to give myself a balance and not feel overstressed.

It’s not about how many, but about how much time do they take. I think you should not pass a 5-6 hours of intense working per day.
3 is the magic number. Make a to do list and pick 3 to get done. I always like to start with the one I am dreading 1st then on to the others.
Top three and then some extras, the top three are for sure get done ones and the rest are ones you can do if you feel up to it but won’t be hard on yourself if you don’t get to them

Start small and let it grow! Begin with 3 things, and after a week when they are becoming more natural, add another! If it still feels too much work, wait another week to add on. Or write a generic to do list on the first of the week that you can apply for each day if doing it daily makes you feel stressed.
- do you often empty your to do list?
- I’m a freak when it comes to organizing and etc. but since I started my own company. I always seem to have so many things to get done which was expected but a to do list becomes so overwhelming when I have a ridiculous amount of things to get done. Does anyone else have the same issue?
- Do you ever find that you’ve put more on your to-do than you can handle? What do you do when that happens?
- What’s a main reoccurring thing on your to do list?
- Do you prefer handwritten to do lists or digital ones?
- Which one do you think is more effective? A written to do list or through an apps to do list?
- How do you get started on a task when you’re not motivated?
- Yeah what do you think would be my best option to writing a to do list easiest to hardest longest to shortest how do you do yours and how does it help you
- Do you give your to-dos a time frame or exact time to do them at? Or do you allow yourself more flexibility?
- How can I write the more efficient to-do list?
