It's also a way of reflecting on how the day went, my actions, and my feelings.
I've got a separate ritual right after breakfast in the mornings- I sit down with coffee and look over my schedule, my weekly task list, anything I wrote the night before, and either make or look over my to-do list for the day. That's when I mark my top priority tasks, and try to figure out what order everything should happen in and what I'll need to be able to get things done. I'm trying to add a new habit to the end of that ritual, just about 5 minutes of something related to longer-term goals (I've been doing a question each day from the "Rituals of Living Dreambook") and it's super helpful for motivating me to get up and actually get the first thing on my task list done afterwards.
- Do you have a daily limit of To Do’s, in order to avoid a never ending list and encourage completion?
- Do you check things off that you are “going to do” but haven’t actually done yet?
- How long is your to do list?
- What you guys write in your to-do!main task or all tasks?
- Which habits have you taken out of your routine and what did you replace them with? And why?
- Do you prepare your to do list in the evening at day before or the in the morning on the day?
- What tools or apps, if any, do you use to manage your tasks and to do lists?
- Do you aim to complete your to-do list or only those items which you have classified are the most important?
- How many of your to do list tasks do you manage to check off at the end of the day? Did you ever manage to check it all?
- How do you keep on top of your daily tasks, and medium to long term actions you need to take? How do you prioritise them? How can I make a proven system and make into a habit?
