NOW, I use Google docs as a hub for my to do lists. I created a business/hobby list and home/habits list. Large lists, like a year's worth type of lists. I combined then to create a timeline "pool" where I designate a time to complete to each task and other then by priority. I have half of my year planned (for being productive in my free time).
I created a daily list. This is where I put household chores and appointments to remember. But it evolved when I made my timeline. If I made chores and simple tasks routine and second nature, I would be able to focus on lifelong progress.
That's what I did, and each day I pull from that timeline. Seeing how far ahead I can get. I let a lot of things I wanted to do just build up and collect dust… But thanks to my new process, I can see the finish line. Once I cross that, there won't be any more "to do lists" hanging over my head.
All that and I could just say I currently have 5 to dos created. Every day is a day to do!
I am much busier at work now, but I only get time on weekends to properly sit down and figure out what's next and what do I need to do, so i jot a to do list specifically for work that I tend to grow and complete throughout the week. My work system works pretty well for me, but my work system – not so much. I think I have too many projects going on and I'm trying still to find the perfect notebook..
- 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??
