I also try to allocate rough times for everything. E.g you’ve been successful if you’ve worked on a report you don’t really want to do for at least half an hour. Then, even if you only manage the half hour and that’s it, you’re less likely to feel guilty about doing other things with your day.
Also I’d recommend getting a scheduling app and logging recurring tasks on that e.g a reminder every week for laundry or dusting. That way your to-do list is only made up of the unique tasks you want to accomplish on that day, on top of your regular schedule.
But only your shirt immediate top 3 list of things to do today.
Keep a “schedule” of “Things to Get Done” including your rituals and routines perhaps on a day-to-day/week/month/year online calendar?
New habits/routines may need to be on your immediate to do list for the day.
Riutines & Rituals that have become ingrained in you probably do t need to be in your to do list or even calendar but syikl in your electronic Fabulous App to help guide you thru the day and keep you on track with reminders and coaching.
- 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??
