Yes, I put it in a separate to do list dump. Then everyday I choose from that list the top 5 important things I have to do. This keeps me focused on the important tasks and prevents me from being overwhelmed from seeing a list too long.
Right now I am trying to make short lists so I can finish task in one day. But if something is left I put it for next day if it is suiting. I do not do lists for later time in the future.
Yes I create a long list then do what is able and necessary. I am not being good at following up on things that need to be done the next day.
I use the David Allen method of 'getting things done' and have lists associated with a place or activity. That way they are specific to my focus away that time and im not worrying about something like cat food when I'm at work.
Yes absolutely get the most important things done and if you can’t complete some of the other stuff just make a note of it so you won’t never do it
- 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??
