However, I would say importance tends to reign. But if I have 5 mins and the most important one will take more time I will pull from elsewhere on the list. Then no matter if I accomplished 1 or all in a day I still give myself a pat on the back for progress.
What defines us is how well we rise after falling …
Fun making it is the way to go …
After lunch I fade out, so That’s where I place the more manuel, triviel tasks – to keep myself from burning out.
But if there is no deadline for the things you do.. I prefer to do them based on the level of importance. Doing the thing that you enjoy as the first thing.. could be really fun.. but then, when you look at all the important stuff that you left for later.. you are going to feel siiick!! So.. what I usually do is that when I have done the most important tasks I prize myself with doing something I like!😊🙃😉
I use this calendar to create a real list for each day off the week. (I reevaluate on Fri for the weekend). Each weekday morning I look at the tasks I have assigned myself and highlight the most important or the ones coming due, working on those first.
At the end of the day I reevaluate possibly moving uncompleted tasks to the next day or removing tasks that no longer apply. I also use this time to really think about my time and how much time things take to complete.
I try to not have my day all about my work or all about my house or even all about my family. But the combination makes it better! Because then it feels like I did something for every part of myself, if that makes sense
- 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’?
- 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??
- How do you realistically decide how long a task will take and how many you should plan for the day?
