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..
- Any trick to really first do the most important tasks?
- What color pen and paper to use for professional purposes
- How often do you complete everything from your to-do list?
- How do you keep track of things that you want to get done but not necessarily today?
- Do you use this to help with ADHD?
- How do I keep from making the list impossible to get done in a day?
- I have found the anxiety of listing leads me to more destructive avoidance behaviors. Do you have this problem? What do you do about it?
- Do you ever put frivolous activities on your to do list?
- How can I incorporate a disability into a feasible Todo list? Some days are bad, the pain is bad, I am not.
- How do you handle long term ToDo items? Things like « Thinking about future life projects », which is more of a background task than an actual item to « do » in the moment per se.
