Are You Ready To Get Started On Your To-Do List?
Everyone says they have a to-do list. How many people though actually complete everything on the list? We say that we are going to get started. However, we always seem to find some excuse to put it off. Then, we complain that nothing gets done. Sound familiar?
UpWork, a business networking company in California, has a solution. One of their exes recently wrote a blog about how to complete your to-do list on time and without much hesitation.
1) Write down everything you want to do each day. According to UpWork, you need to list everything according to how important the task is.
“People make time for the things they consider important. Everything else gets put off to till the last minute or not done at all.”
What is important to you? Doing the dishes? Painting the guest room? Making a list of what is important to you increases the chances of you doing it.
2) According to UpWork, you should take some time to think. Procrastination is not always a bad thing. It does serve a purpose. Procrastination allows you to take stock. There are some things on your list that do not need to be there. There may be something you did last year that you did not do this year. How important is it? Is there any value you will get by doing it again? You may be better off letting it go.
“Did you know that 80% of the value you get comes from only 20% of everything you do?”
3) You need to develop different energy levels for each activity. Some of them require more energy than others. Do the tasks that require the most energy during your most alert hours. Save the tasks that you can do in your sleep for when your brain is foggy.
