I chose a nice agenda and I write my to do list every morning on it. I also have a spot where I write monthly reminders like paying the bill.
- When writing my to-do list, I use piece of paper and cross things out as I accomplish them. I don’t do this in any organized manner and I don’t maintain a notebook. Should I do it the Fabulous way, or is it okay to do it my way?
- Hey! For your to-do list, do you usually include everyday activities or special ones only?
- I feel that writing the top three most important tasks is a great idea, so one doesn’t put too much on their plate. However, how are we to quantify these tasks? Is taking five minutes to pay a bill on my phone the same as cleaning dishes for fifteen minutes or exercising for 30 minutes or having dinner with family for two hours?? Also, what if I have one task I’m avoiding, because it’s a big deal. If I break it down into multiple, smaller tasks like most advise, how many of those can I do per day? What if it’s something I’ve never done before, so I have no idea how long it may take? I’m confused about this, as well. Maybe I need a distinction between different tasks. Maybe we could categorize tasks by length, effort, and importance?? Also, I find if I’m not sure what to prioritize, because so much seems important, I’ll go over the list with my spouse and he will help me make a decision or take some of the tasks off my hands. Sometimes, I can ask for help or delegate. Also, do I write a separate top three list for work? I feel like I need one for work and one for home or I won’t get much done at either place.
- What do you do when all your tasks seem so HUGE and difficult to accomplish, whether a day job, a week, or longer, how do you stay stuck on the job and not get bored and restless over it?
- Do you usually achieve the goals that you write on your to-do list?
I use Todoist because that way I have access to it from any device. Some people prefer a paper one. I tried using it, and it does feel good to check off things from your physical to-do list. However, I feel like Todoist helps me keeping the to-do list organized with Projects, Priorities and the The Next 7 Days view.
Some people prefer a physical notebook or a piece of paper to write their to do list but I personally use a basic notes app (Google keep) and have a note tagged "To do list" where I write my to do every day and check off the items as the day goes by. I use the widget the app provides and I have dedicated an entire screen of my phone to this widget so I can view it in an instant without opening an app. Also the checked items can be brought back to the list so I don't have to write everything from scratch every day, I just uncheck some items that are already in the list and I plan on doing on the day. Hope this helps 😊
I am using the Evernote to collect my ideias and organize my life. I am learning the gtd sistem and I am very happy with it.
I write my to do list in a spiral binder. If I mess it up I can tear it out and start fresh. I also keep them so on days I feel I haven't accomplished much during the week I can look back and so how productive I have been. It also gives me ideas of things I may have forgotten I wanted to do.
I write the to do list on about half a sheet of paper. I may not use the same notebook (how sad I would be when I used it all up!), but the pages are the same size and I rip them from some sort of notebook. While the book is not always the same, I write my to do in the same place everyday: my comfy chair in my bedroom. At the end of the day, I write my end of day review on the back of that day's sheet of paper, sitting in the same chair, and then I crumple it up and throw it in the corner. It is very gratifying.
I write them on my phone. I check it several times a day and each time I look at my to do list and ensure I am staying focused.
I have a journal dedicated to my Fabulous Journey where I write my to do, quotes I love. Daily gratitudes. I will also use this journal to reflect on how far I have come and how much I have grown.
For personal items, I have a letter size at a glance weekly planner. The size lets me tuck any bills, letters or info into the appropriate date then file or recycle once they’re done. At work, I print out my screen from my workflow queue then add any extra items by hand.
I have a small, spral top notebook to write my to do list in and I write my list every morning, sitting at my desk (at home, I'm disabled)
I like using an app called Google Keep and another one called Stuff to do. It's easy to open the app(s) and write my to do down and tick the boxes as I complete the tasks, because they both have very useful widgets. I hope this helps! 😊
I bought a small spiral ring notebook that I can fit in my pocket. Usually, however, it sits on the desk in my dorm room. When I wake up, going to my notebook helps force me out of bed. When I get back from classes, it's right there by my desk so I can see the things I need to do before the day is over.
Actually.. I didn't write.. I am too lazy to that… Initially I wrote to do list in a small pocket dairy.. But I didn't do well… And didn't achieve.. I lose my confidence… Thn I started to type on Any do…. Now I have app called GOAL METER.. But I can't achieve… My plan didn't work….
My exam… I wish to get full mark in economics… Bt failed to get it.
