The worlds #1 tool, a todo list

Do you frequently feel overwhelmedUsing Your To-Do Lists, we its ok you’ve come to the right place.

Different people use To-Do Lists in different ways in different situations: if you are in a sales-type role, a good way of motivating yourself is to keep your list relatively short and aim to complete it every day.

In an operational role, or if tasks are large or dependent on too many other people, then it may be better to keep one list and ‘chip away’ at it.

It may be that you carry unimportant jobs from one To-Do List to the next. You may not be able to complete some very low priority jobs for several months. Only worry about this if you need to, and if you are running up against a deadline for them, raise their priority on your list.

If you have not used To-Do Lists before, try them now: using them is one of the most important things you can do to become really productive and efficient, please I beg you, it’s will make life a whole lot Easier.

Key Points: I know some people are busy so I summarized my post at the start here

Prioritized To-Do Lists are fundamentally important to efficient work. If you use To-Do Lists, you will ensure that:

-You remember to carry out all necessary tasks.
You tackle the most important jobs first, and do not waste time on trivial tasks.
You do not get stressed by a large number of unimportant jobs.
To draw up a Prioritized To-Do List. Mark the importance of the task next to it, with a priority from A (very important) to F (unimportant). Redraft the list into this order of importance.

-Now carry out the jobs at the top of the list first. These are the most important, most beneficial tasks to complete. by the amount of work you have to do? Do you face a constant barrage of looming deadlines? Or do you sometimes just forget to do something important, so that people have to chase you to get work done?

-All of these are symptoms of not keeping a proper “To-Do List”. To-Do Lists are prioritized lists of all the tasks that you need to carry out. They list everything that you have to do, with the most important tasks at the top of the list, and the least important tasks at the bottom.

-While this sounds a simple thing to do, it’s when people start to use To-Do Lists properly that they often make their first personal productivity/time management breakthrough, and start to make a real success of their careers.

-By keeping a To-Do List, you make sure that you capture all of the tasks you have to complete in one place. This is essential if you’re not going to forget things. And by prioritizing work, you plan the order in which you’ll do things, so you can tell what needs your immediate attention, and what you can quietly forget about until much, much later. This is essential if you’re going to beat work overload. Without To-Do Lists, you’ll seem dizzy, unfocused and unreliable to the people around you. With To-Do Lists, you’ll be much better organized, and will seem much more reliable. This is very important!

In detail for the people that care to read it all, thank you!

Preparing a To-Do List

Start by writing down all of the tasks that you need to complete, and if they are large, break them down into their component elements. If these still seem large, break them down again. Do this until you have listed everything that you have to do, this shouldn’t take long buddy, and until tasks will take no more than 1-2 hours to complete. This may be a huge and intimidating list, but our next step makes it manageable!

Next, run through these jobs allocating priorities from A (very important, or very urgent) to F (unimportant, or not at all urgent). If too many tasks have a high priority, run through the list again and demote the less important ones. Once you have done this, rewrite the list in priority order.

You will then have a precise plan that you can use to eliminate the problems you face. You will be able to tackle these in order of importance or urgency. This allows you to separate important jobs from the many time-consuming trivial ones. I’m a geniuses right, is so simple!
