You can always break big tasks down into smaller parts. And sometimes it helps to do so in order to stay motivated. For instance, you could say I am going to write two paragraphs, then I’m going to spend 30 mins collecting and organizing source material for the next bit and then I am going to write one page.
I would work on it do 30 minutes and then break for five. Then I would work on it for 20 minutes and break for 10. After that, I will work for 10 minutes and break for 20. Then I will go back to working for 30 minutes and continue the cycle.
- 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??
