Next, every day make a list of max 3 things from the list (or steps towards completing bigger things on your list) these are your goals for today.
Next you figure out when during your schedule for today you will be doing your 3 things
Before you know it you have gone through all the original items on your big list
The important part is to keep updating your big list so that important tasks never get forgotten.
You write down 3 things you want to achieve or accomplish today. E.g. Do a certain homework assignment, read 50 pages in a book or go grocery shopping. Don't make the tasks too big, split them up into smaller ones.
Fabulous recommends that you use a physical notebook to write your to-do lists. Personally I use Todoist.
Make it a habit that when you wake up, you write down what you want to do today. And keep it to 3 tasks only. If you have extra time you can of course do more things. But focus on the three most important tasks.
Some people also plan out their day by placing timestamps next to the tasks, as a sort of deadline for when it needs to be completed. This way they know exactly what to focus on and can easily get back on track if they get distracted. Personally I don't do this but feel free to try it out.
- 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?
