It seems impossible to get everything done on your to-do list, but the reality is that you’re simply looking at your to-do list the wrong way. In fact, it’s possible that you may have things on there that you actually don’t need to take care of. Yes, really.
You have to prioritize
As mentioned in Lifehacker’s article, “Schedule Every To-Do Item on Your List—or Trash It”, you often just need to take a look at the real reason why something is on your to-do list and determine whether or not it’s something that should be there. Here are some things to keep in mind when deciding that:
- Is the task achievable in the span of the weekend or the week?
- Is it something that you actually want to do?
- Why is it important that it is done this week?
The goal with your to-do list is to actually, you know, get it all done by the end of the week or weekend, and understanding what should (or should not) be on there is key to that. You can find more information by taking a look at Lifehacker’s article here!
