Daily jobs to do, 6 things at the most, written every day (because it keeps things under control and encourages you to transfer parts of larger tasks across from your master list), probably at the end of each day (which gives you closure and means you are less likely to be interrupted). Why you can't put everything on the master list. What it might physically be like. Minimal time required!
- The most commonly used time management tool…is probably a jobs-to-do list.…And that's for a reason.…They are very effective.…But there are two things about them…that most people don't know…and which would make them a lot more effective…if they were used.…And I wanna tell you about these two now.…The first is that the daily list should be used…in conjunction with a master list.…This means that all the big things,…for example, learn Italian or recruit new sales director,…stay on the master list.…
The daily list is only for the small parts…of these projects that can actually be done today,…like buy Italian CD from Amazon…or get phone numbers of three recruitment agencies.…This is really important, you must have the two lists.…And they are completely different in how they work.…The master list stays pretty much the same…while the daily list is completed every day.…By the way, if you have a bad day…and you don't manage to finish your daily list, that's fine.…The jobs just move on to tomorrow's list.…
So, the daily list should not have more than 10 items on it,…
