Small and relatively unimportant things and habits should not go on the Todo list.
I usually write that i have to complete my fabulous routine instead of writing drinking water,excercise etc. Otherwise the other habits may include like oiling my hair,steaming my hair,completeing my homework etc.
Then my second to-do list is first thing when I get to work. I simply line out my goals for the day at work.
I consider these two lists very seperate and rarely do they intertwine. Hope this helps!
On Sundays I look at the whole week and map out my workouts and training for the week considering any hired work or travel. At the beginning of the month I always look at my month and I assess my whole year quarterly.
If you ever have questions you may ask!
I include basic tasks such as the ones you wrote above. I advise breaking down big tasks such as “studying something” to small tasks (“write hw”, “ schedule what I’ll do today” “do the thing”, “organize desk”).
I also advise you to write “eat breakfast/lunch/dinner/a snack”, “taking a shower” and such.
- How do you avoid from having the habit of pushing stuff for the next day?
- I have so many things to do in a day, I am a mother, a student, I have a job, exercise. I really can’t imagine narrowing a day’s to-do list to just three items. How can this be done?
- How do you choose how to group and order your tasks so they’re not as overwhelming?
- On your to do list, you always make first the most important to do? I always tend to run away
- Is it bad if I do not accomplish all the tasks in my to do list?
- How far in advance do you put tasks on your to do list? I am a big procrastinator and if I see something on my to do list that’s not due for a while I tend to just ignore it. Any suggestions on how to solve this?
- How far ahead should one write their list.. i.e. daily, weekly or monthly?
- Is it any way to make do to list more creative but still keep them simple?
- What strategies do you use to prioritize & organize “to do now” vs “to do later” tasks?
- How to make sure you stick to your list when something else that you need to finish first just popped out?
