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
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
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 🙂
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 🙂
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.
- 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??
