How to Streamline Your To Do List

How to Streamline Your To Do List

I don’t know if you also have this problem, but I used to use my to-do list as a holding place for everything I could think of that I should or could do, ever.

I thought that putting everything in my brain on paper would help quell my anxiety, but instead it only made it worse.

Every day I would transfer the things that I didn’t get done (which were plentiful) to the next day and then add new things.

By the end of the week I felt overwhelmed, like there was never enough time, and worse, like there was something wrong with me.

I thought if I could just be more organized or find the holy grail of time management systems, I would someday figure out how to get it all done.

And then I had kids. Suddenly I didn’t have the time and attention I’d once had for my work. The way I was working had to change.

I started streamlining my to-do list by asking myself 3 incredibly simple yet powerful questions about each item before it made it onto the list. I started treating my to-do list as a sacred space as opposed to a dumping ground.

In the video below you’re going to learn:

  • The 3 questions you can use to ensure that only the things that really matter make it on your to-do list (so you have more time for yourself).
  • The number one culprit for overwhelm and how to stop perpetuating it within your own life.
  • Why switching from making a daily to a weekly to-do list changes the game when there are things in your life that are out of your control (which, it turns out, is true about everyone’s life)
