The jury is still out on To Do Lists. They do work for some people. We like them, however they do have a fundamental flaw. Many tasks on a To Do List don’t seem to get done. The non essential tasks are often pushed further down the list and never achieved. Strike a chord? So what should you do? Start with deleting your To Do List and instead schedule your tasks.
If you allocate time for these tasks this will allow you to be far more productive than having a never ending long list of ’things to do’. There are many scheduling apps out there that help you with this, such as Todoist or you can simply use your icalendar to set realistic times for each task.

If you can stick to it you will see that allocating time for tasks rather than having a long To Do List really does work. These small things can make all the difference. Try it and see.
