We all struggle with getting things done.
The burden of this fast-paced and busy world only adds weight on our shoulders, and it seems like no matter how many things we do, there is always a new pile of stuff waiting for us to take care of. But while some of us are stuck in the whirlpool of daily obligations, tasks, and endless chores, others struggle with the previous stage – figuring out what it is they need to do.
Regardless of which stage you are in, the single most successful tool for getting things done is the to-do list.
The to-do list is the best time-honored system that offers simple effectiveness. There are four steps to every well-created to-do list:
1. Figure out the tasks that you need to do and in which order
2. Write them down
3. Complete them
4. Cross them out
And that’s it. After you take advantage of this simple but super powerful tool for getting things done, you will not only have a lot less on your plate, but you will also be relieved from stress and anxiety. Or at least that’s what is expected when creating a to-do list. The reality is sometimes the opposite.
For many people, the to-do list ends up adding more stress and decreasing motivation for completing the tasks written. This mainly happens because people rush their way through the first two steps too quickly, then the third one never comes.
Failing to organize what actually needs to get done is like making the worst dinner ever. You cannot simply grab everything from your fridge, whisk it together, put it in a pan, and expect a mouthwatering taste. In the same manner don’t be fooled into thinking that writing random tasks without any order will result in getting everything done.
If you have a to-do list but haven’t managed to cross anything important out, do not blame your busy schedule – blame your poor to-do list. Using this guide, you will be able to learn how to put your life in order and to maximize your time using to-do-lists.
