- Do you keep your to do list under a certain amount of items to make sure that it is achievable?
- How do you fit writing your to-do list in your busy morning schedule?
- What tips for success can you share?
- Do you use pen and paper for to-do-list? I have downloaded many apps for this job and none works for me.
- Do you have a preference for making your to-do list in the morning or the night before and why so?
Then I pick the top 1-3 tasks and put them at the top in order of importance.
Then I write down times in 30 min increments and out the tasks from the original list on the new list in the time slot that would work best for my day.
I put myself in a situation where I can focus, if my to-do list is course work. If it’s Chores I turn on a show I’ve seen a thousand times and I clean while it’s on. It helps me not feel bored. It can be difficult for me to prioritize, since I am disabled and my symptoms make it hard to garauntee plans in advance.
Making it so I can only do the thing I need to do, like going to the library
Lowest priority are things that would be nice to get done but not really important, or things I don't want to forget about.
The piece of this answer that tends to be overlooked or skipped, probably because it's assumed to already done, is your personal values. This is where the middle variances of priority come into play for me. I'll use myself as an example.
I value my family above all. I'm going to school to improve my situation. This is my secondary priority. Work is a tertiary priority in this case.
A family item that's not crucial might be a step above the lowest level. School deadlines are probably going above most family items… except family deadlines or work deadlines that could cost me my job.
I currently work with four levels of priority. Items can fluctuate priority based on the above criteria.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
