Importanz task is the one thing which brings you nearer to what is it you really want to archive. For example: I might have to pay a bill which I do, but for me personally is it important? NO! But fixing my relationship with my father and therefor calling him to make a date for dinner, this for me is more of essential importance. I hope this helps a bit.
I think important work are the big projects. That’s what will bring you the most fulfillment in life and requires small amounts of dedicated time to actually make progress on.
I struggle with writing to do lists considering I feel I can remember it but end up forgetting anyway. Its also rough for me to remember to reflect In mornings because I think of the million things I have to do during the day. I also struggle with getting things done after work because Im mentally exhausted
Either one for me. And their priority changes on a day to day basis. If it’s the day before my rent is due, that becomes highest priority because a roof over my head gives me the support I need to do my other work. And other days, working on my long-term personal projects take precedence over other matters.
"Important work" is the work you do that makes a difference in the world. It stems from your passion and leaves you feeling fulfilled when it's over.
It changes day to day. Important one day may be cooking a healthy dinner for my family and having one on one time with daughter. The next day, importance may be related to work, bills, etc.
I think it’s a mixture of both. It is on one hand stuff that has to be done and thus is a priority, on the other hand you might have your own personal priorities that you want to respect.
Do both. Think of the 3 tasks as "if I complete these 3, then the day will be successful." If i absolutely have to do something, I put it on there. If I want to carve out time to read for an hour, I put that there too.
- 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??
