  • Does it fit your overall goals?
  • Is it part of your weekly project plan?
  • Can the tasks on your daily be accomplished 2 hours or less?

These are all important. What you don’t want is a brain dump of everything you have to do. A do list is for critical items that must get done. Things that are vital to your business, livelihood or well-being. You need a separate list for your major goals for the year. Everything should derive from this list. Your weekly project plan items are things that are  defined in one week or smaller chunks. This weekly plans should feed your daily list of 2-3 items that are planned to be accomplished in two to three hours. Breaking things into doable time chunks is very important. If you have three things on your list and they all take four hours, you are going to have a very long day or things to carry over to the next day. Your list must be prioritized. The top thing on the list is most important. You should focus on this first thing in the morning while you are still at your best. Hope you find these to do list tips helpful. Let me hear your to do list tips. What do you do get the most mileage out of your to do list?

      Everyone has their own twist of what works for them. If it works for you great! The point I was trying make; does your daily and weekly list of things to do reflect your overall goals and direction. i.e. are they the important things. I don’t put things on my list like get gas, get groceries, pick up the mail. I might schedule a block of time for “errands” to clean out stuff required for daily living, but not on the really important list. Does this make sense at all? I’m coffee deficient at the moment…

    I love a good to do list! I heard of a great way to handle the to do list recently, and that is to write everything down that comes to mind, absolutely everything, and then to scan through the list daily and do anything that jumps out at you. It actually works really well, I think your subconscious or instinct seems to know what the priority needs to be on any given day depending on what’s going.
