To Do Lists On 3x5 Cards


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have a master list which also has long-term projects on it. Then I use 3x5 cards to break the list down into what I can REASONABLY do in a day. So instead of having 4-5 pages, I have maybe 8-10. The sense of accomplishment is amazing! Once the list is done I can choose to play without guilt emoticon

    This sounds related to the Getting Things Done system, which I also find very helpful. We do get overwhelmed easily, and if we're emotional eaters, we don't need the stress of a huge list in front of us all the time!

    I'm going to try this!

    Wow, this sounds like a good way to shuffle the to-do's as you reprioritize them throughout the week. And.... saves on rewriting your list all the time.
