So you have a daily to-do list. Effectively getting through it every day can sometimes bee pretty frustrating. Fortunately, there is a good plan to help you to do so. Here is a ten-step plan for doing so:
- Capture Everything
In other words, write down everything you need to that down instead of just keeping it in your head. If all of these tasks are only in your head, you will be distracted because you are thinking about these other things you need to do while you are doing one of them.
- Prepare Your List in Advance
This is one of the most important things that you will do on any day. You are well advised to make it for the next day, the night before.
- One Place
A to-do list ensures that all of the tasks you need to do are listed in one place. Although all of your tasks might be written down in a number of different areas, if they are not all together in one place, it is hard to keep track of everything.
- Time Attributes
Make your list as productive as possible by specifying time attributes. Name when you will start on the task and how long you will do it before completing it. Add deadlines if they exist.
- Define priorities
When you make your list, you need to decide the priority of each item. This will help you on any given day since just about every day an unexpected emergency or circumstance crops up unannounced.
- Keep Reevaluating
As you go through your list and your day, evaluate the things you have on the list. It may be practical to put some things off for another day. Sometimes you might even decide it doesn’t need to be done at all.
- Stress-free Delegation
Take the stress out of trying to find comments that talk about needed tasks. To do this get ClickUp that helps convert these comments into these needed tasks.
- Zoom In and Out
Zoom in on each task and combine them with each other if possible. In the process of this, zoom out to make sure each task is actually part of a bigger project.
- Batch Process
This refers to what are known as batch process factories who find it more expedient to get stuff done by batching similar work together. This is a method that works really well for to-do lists.
- Assign Energy Levels
This step goes hand in hand with assigning a tasks priority. Decide how much energy of yours the task deserves. If it is a very high priority task, it should come first thing in the morning.
