I write them in random order, I find that I do naturally start picking the heavier/ difficult tasks first. For me it works better to have easy/medium/ difficult tasks in no particular order that I can choose to do in any order. It gives me freedom of my day, as I don’t know which order I’ll be doing things but I am aware of what I need to achieve in a day.
1. Important and urgent
2. Important but not urgent
3. Urgent but not important
4. Busy misc. work
5. Waste of time (for today)
In that order and see what you can accomplish and what not done add it to your todo list for another day. Not necessarily the next day but another day where you can focus on it
- Which techniques have you found successful to stick to your to-do list as the day goes on?
- do you often empty your to do list?
- I’m a freak when it comes to organizing and etc. but since I started my own company. I always seem to have so many things to get done which was expected but a to do list becomes so overwhelming when I have a ridiculous amount of things to get done. Does anyone else have the same issue?
- Do you ever find that you’ve put more on your to-do than you can handle? What do you do when that happens?
- What’s a main reoccurring thing on your to do list?
- Do you prefer handwritten to do lists or digital ones?
- Which one do you think is more effective? A written to do list or through an apps to do list?
- How do you get started on a task when you’re not motivated?
- Do you give your to-dos a time frame or exact time to do them at? Or do you allow yourself more flexibility?
- How can I write the more efficient to-do list?
