Secrets of Success

My "To Do" Lists Are Long, So Now What?



My "To Do" lists are usually miles long! So... I break them up into sections...
A. is for things that must happen today, then number them 1,2,3,etc.
B. is for the things that could wait a day, also number 1,2,3,etc.
C. is the the things that need to happen in the next week or two, again number 1,2,3,etc.

  • Sounds like mine used too!!! Now I use 3x5 cards... I can separate the chores - inside, outside, cleaning, errands, etc. I can only fit 5 or 6 on a card, and I just feel such a sense of accomplishment when I finish a card :) - by JACKSMIMI2
  • The nice thing about marking them A,B,C is that they don't have to all be in order! I just write my list then go back and mark them... because I'm like you Sammylynne- I have so many things to add, etc. that I used to do the same thing! I also like the idea of the 3x5 cards Jacksmimi2... I could use one for each of my A,B,C lists! - by BNSPIRD
  • "To Do" list don't work for me. I start out writing them and then think of something else I should do. Rip it up and start again. By the time I make a list of things to do I can have my work done. emoticon emoticon - by SAMMYLYNNE
  • YES!!! This sounds like my to do list, word for word. However mind is because I can only do so much before being defeated by so much pain that I begin to stress which add to my pain because I'm that person who always want to finish what I started. emoticon emoticon emoticon - by BETTERME54
