I prefer to make my list the night before. Then I look at it in the morning before breakfast. Then I set reminders on my phone as I am letting coffee brew. Then in the evening, I go over my list and cross what I did for that day and rearrange for the next day if there are tasks I didn't get to accomplish that day.
After because breakfast is the last thing I do in the house. I write my to do list on the way to work. This helps me engage with the fact I'm off to work and moves me from 'home' headspace towork headspace
I usually write my to do at night before bed and review it in the morning. Pertaining to before or after breakfast, you could try both and see what works best for you.
- 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??
