My to-do list has 51 tasks right now.
I’ve been putting them off for a while.
Every single task I need to do- no matter how big or small I’ve jotted down in this list.
More than often – my chaotic day takes over and I cannot get my overwhelming to-do list to zero
This pandemic has given me some time to experiment and work with my task list
So here are 4 strategies I’ve come up with:
1.Delete some tasks
When you have toooo many things to do.
It’s time to pick and choose.
Delete some tasks you can do without.
It will give you some breathing time.
2.Schedule just 3 tasks a day
Schedule for just 3 tasks a day. And get them done by the end of the day.
Fit them between events, between meeting or between classes.
3.Delegate them to someone else
If there is task you can ask someone else to do for you – do it
It will at least buy you some time and some breathing space.
Or ask someone to help you on this task – it will surely reduce your workload and also help you learn a different strategy to tackle the same task
4.A kill -switch
When my to do-list is beyond control and I keep pushing my tasks to another day
like it is now
I do something called a task list day
I simply pick one day withing the next 7 upcoming days
And this one day is the day I will buckle down and try to do every single task on my list.
It’s kind of a last-minute kill switch to get everything down to zero
