This might sound familiar to you, you start each workday with a lengthy list of tasks, there’s a lot to do, but you are confident that every item can be completed. Then something unexpected comes up. Next thing you know, the day is almost over. You work hard at a frantic pace, but you end up feeling frustrated because there’s not enough time to do everything! Unfortunately, this is a common experience for many people. We all write lists with the hope that they will turn us into productivity machines. Sadly, to-do lists often have the opposite effects. The wrong type of list can be de-motivating, causing you to slack off and procrastinate. In other words, it is one thing to create a lengthy list, but it’s a whole other thing to complete tasks when we’re faced with dozens of distractions. Another problem is that it’s impossible to predict what will happen in the future. While you might start the day with a grand plan to complete an important project, you never know what crisis will arise from that next email or phone call. So, are you wondering why do so many people struggle with their time management and personal productivity? The answer lies in how they create their lists and what commitments they make on a daily basis. More often than not, people fill their lists with a disorganized mess of tasks, wants, needs, and random ideas. Then they set around and wonder why they’re not getting significant results in their lives! The trick to getting results is to make your to-do list as efficient as possible. To do this, you must rethink the way you manage your daily life. Specifically, you should use multiple lists that cover different types of task. It’s time for you to identify the important tasks and know how to structure each day so you complete these items. In short, it's time for you to do a to-do list makeover!
