- Do it immediately. It may take you less time than you think.
- Schedule it. Find a time slot on your calendar when you can get the task done. If it's important enough to have on your list, then commit to doing it at a specific time and day.
- Let it die. If you're not willing to do something immediately or schedule it for later, you won't ever do it. Accept that it's not really a priority and take it off your list
You may find this a 'no-brainer'. But, if you are in my position, re-locating big time, it will be a different story altogether.
I am shuffling with a long 'to-do' list... as part of settling down :)
Tried listing down & then, decided to use iPad's to do list ! At least it appears better on the screen :)
It has not helped to close out the pending stuff sooner, but it saves paper & hassle of writing & re-writing process !
