Stop Making To-Do Lists Do This Instead

Problem

  • To-do lists should be called painful wish lists. A series of tasks you hope to accomplish, without a specific plan. 

Solutions

  • Schedule a chunk of time for everything that is important to you; this is called “time blocking” or “time boxing.”
  •  Important items should be scheduled as early in the day as possible
  • Third, don’t cancel goals; reschedule them if necessary.
  • Treat your time-blocked calendar entries as if they were appointments with your doctor; they are that important.

  • Every Yes is a No to something else. It's not that you should say no to everything; it's that you should think it through.
  • uncontrolled, saying yes to requests for time will quickly block out all the other things we value—including the very things that made us successful in the first place.
  • Give yourself permission to say no without guilt. You should not care about what others think of you for declining their requests!
  • Say no to everything that does not support your immediate goals

C-(CAPTURE)=You must “capture” everything and anything into a notebook instead of trying to keep things in your head.

C-(CALENDAR)-What is implied with this step is don’t use a to-do list! If you want “to do” something, immediately schedule it on your calendar.

C-(Concentrate)- Don’t multitask, concentrate on one task at a time.
