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
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
- 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??
