If your way keeps you organized enough & allows you to accomplish your daily tasks, go for it! But if you’re looking for an upgrade and want to try a new method, Fabulous app is a good place to start. I definitely use a notebook too and physically write a list of my to-do’s each morning. But I also try to log them in my app for a couple minutes each day, usually at night. This way I can evaluate how I did that day with a little recap, and start thinking about tomorrow’s list too.
- How many things is a reasonable amount to put on your to do list and do I include things I naturally do everyday anyway?
- How many to do items do you put on your list daily? How many on average get done?
- Do you also put your daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly goals in a prioritized list and add them to a to do list as time allows?
- Do you allow yourself to put frivolous but joy-creating activities on your to do list? (Watching a movie. Enjoying a piece of chocolate)
- Is it better if I to my to do list separating morning/afternoon/night?
I think everybody should do it in his/her own way. I have a bullet journal as I can 't maintain an agenda; for example.
I say do whatever works for you and helps you get thru ur day to day. I use my phone and numerous notebooks to keep track of my daily activities and duties
I think it’s best to adapt for what works for you. But I do like to have all my lists in one place so I can reflect back and remind myself to carry things forward if I did not accomplish them. I keep it in a planner but a plain notebook works too!
The fabulous way is good because it gives you a way to go through the steps one by one in order so it creates a routine out of all the habits. If you want to do it your way, just create a routine without a timer. Or create a routine that isn’t related to time. I have a few “by end of day” routines like mini habits, social routines and habits
Its better to keep your to do lists all organized in one journal. I find that it motivates me more hecause everytime i go to write a new to do list i am able to see everything I’ve already accomplished! Also when using a journal instead of just a piece of paper it makes it seem more like a routine than just a random scattered chore to do! Hope this helps
If how you do it is working for you, I see no reason to change it! I write my to-do list in my school agenda or grocery list style. The only time I do it the organized notebook Fabulous style is when I'm making a list for a project (like all the steps I need to take in writing a term paper) so I can have it seperate from my more general to-do list! I think your style seems simple and practical, organising things all nicely can take time/mental effort that you could be spending on actually checking things off that list! No need to make it more difficult for yourself.
- 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
- How far should I scale back my expectations when I fail? What if I fail every time for the rest of my life?
- How many items do you write in your To-do?
- How do you make time for yourself with 5 kids and a husband who works 12-14 hours a day?
