I want to share my tips on achieving your to-do list. We should all have to do less because it keeps you focused, but we probably all have different types of to-do lists. Some people:
That’s really good if you procrastinate, you find it difficult to start doing something. If you’ve done that first bit, it becomes much, much easier.
Organised people have to do lists that in order of A, B, C.
If that’s the list that you have, then immediately I’d say get rid of C. You only need the things that are a priority now, or when moving the priority, or when you’ve got time, you can then do those things. That’s going to save at least a third of the time.
The other thing when you’re making to-do lists, you have to follow best practices. Do to-do lists daily. You don’t want a great big long list that doesn’t focus on things you’re meant to be doing on that day.
Have a daily to-do list, make it realistic. Don’t make something like huge that you’re never going on to achieve. What can you actually achieve on that day, and then put time next to everything?
If you need to break bigger tasks down into smaller time slots, then do that. When you’ve got a spare 15 minutes in your diary, you can look at the to-do list and tackle those things.
My last thing on to-do lists would be at the end of everyday review what went well, what went badly, and then redo your to-do list for the next day again. This is will set you up for success on the next day.
