Got a to-do list a mile long? Yeah, me too. Sigh.
If you are like me and Bettina....we LOVE our to do lists! We are always coming up with better ways to be more efficient and tackle everything in our day.
So we thought we'd share a few of tips on how we try to tackle our days, weeks, months, even YEARS!
Let’s tackle it together with these surefire tips:
• But first, brain dump. Sometimes we can’t make progress on our to-dos because our brains are so full of other thoughts, plans, and intentions. Before pulling out your list, grab your phone or a blank sheet of paper and do a brain dump of all those thoughts swirling around.
• Create a task snowball. Tackle your to-dos in this order: Complete the tasks you can knock out in the shortest amount of time first. This gives you some easy wins under your belt and carries momentum into your next task.
• Know your rhythms. If morning is your productivity sweet-spot, use those hours to tackle tasks that require the most mental bandwidth. Save the afternoon for your more administrative and routine to-dos. Flip-flop this plan if you’re the opposite.
None of us will ever reach productivity bliss — but that doesn’t mean we don’t keep trying, growing, and learning.
So let’s get after it today!
Here's us planning the years ahead on butcher paper on our living room floor!
