Still going very slowly with a to do list because I’m constantly trying to figure out how to manage a life and home and integrate art again.
It’s very slow
It’s very slow
- Do you think it really matters what time the Fab app suggests you do your to do list. I like it before bed or when I’m about to start work to eliminate distractions to either sleeping or anxiety before starting work. Do you think you have to follow their time period?
- What do you do if you work 12 hour shifts? It’s hard to have things to do that day! What things do you do?
- How do you make an accurate and attainable list?
- How do I choose and prioritize my to-do list?
- How can you best use your phone as a notebook for to-dos?
I know it is silly but when I colorize and beautify my bullet-point to-do-list I more think about goals and I'm less scared to do them 🙂
Keep it simple and real. The main benefit of the to-do-list is that makes you think in the actions needed to accomplish a goal. Small and simple actions are more manageable. So instead of focusing in a big goal during my day I focus on the tiny steps. As a result, I feel less anxious and get more efficient. For instance, I know I have to deliver a report, but instead of writing deliver a report I’ll write simple steps, such as, organizing and gathering information, deciding on report structure or writing the data analysis section. My to-do-list will have actions, so I’m able to estimate the time it will take me to complete these actions. If I have many actions I a day I’ll just keep in my list the amount of action I can actually finish within a day. In this way, I can avoid being frustrated at the end of the day if my actions are not achieved.
I tend to limit my to-do list to three items. These items are the most pressing things, things that maybe have been bugging me for a while (that I’m spending more time actually thinking about than doing) it things that I need to get done that day. This makes sure that I actually feel accomplished because I only need to focus on three things. Hope this helps 🙂
I’ve been struggling a lot with my to-do-list, but I have just decided started with baby steps, I mean, I divided the projected in small pieces then I can focus on what I can really do
- What happens when you don’t have anything to do?
- Share your to do list templates/techniques
- How can I effectively stick to my to do list?
- What do you do when you don’t complete everything on your to do list? How do you not feel defeated?
- What to do items can you make into routines or habits instead?
- How do you balance making your to do list both feasible and inspiring? (If my to do list is only things I know I can get done in a day it is too simple and makes me not feel like I will achieve the things I want to
- I’m interested to know how many todo lists others have
