Before I started at my new job, I had never really made task lists.
Well, I thought I had, but for some reason I was never getting to the end of them.
I’ve recently discovered the importance in writing task lists which are both:
I’ve now learnt to divide my week into 2 separate task lists.
- A general weekly task list
- A daily task list
This is both for my personal and work life.
On a Monday I will map out what I know I need completed by the end of the week.
These include: big projects, jobs that are a work in progress or even things I need to prepare before a meeting or event later in the week.
Then, on each day I allocate time to the tasks which will make up those projects to ensure I am on track to get them done.
This is why it’s always important to set tasks which are achievable and timebound.
Previously, I wasted too much time swapping between projects with no understanding on what needed priority.
I finally have developed this method to cure the madness.
If anyone else has any organisational tips and tricks I would love to hear them in the comment section below!
