A Trick That Will Speed Up Your To-Do List
The devil’s in the details
We feel you: Your to-do list is a mile long. But the reason you’re never crossing major items off your list has to do with the level of detail you’re putting in. This super tiny (and ever-genius) tweak will help.
What you do: Instead of writing your to-do list as a vague checklist with items like book doctor’s appointment or pay bills, you should write it in a way that enables you to take immediate action. For example, call gynecologist at [insert phone number here] or write rent check for $1000 and mail it to [insert address here].
Why this works: It’s all about creating a more detailed call to action. That way, when you have 15 minutes to spare, you have specific tasks that you can cross off your to do list so you feel accomplished versus overwhelmed.
Your to-do list feels shorter already. Mission, accomplished.
