Have you ever started a goal only to find yourself giving up a week later?
I’m sure at some point we all have, and we also come up with the same excuses as well:
- We’re tired (from work, lack of sleep, etc.)
- We’re low on time
- We’re not informed enough to take action
- We’re waiting for the “perfect” time start
I’m sure you can relate to at least a few of those excuses (I know I can), and honestly they can be valid sometimes. But becoming successful in life means breaking through the excuses and working anyway, it’s just REALLY hard to do sometimes. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
You can defeat the everyday excuses we all make, it just takes a little bit of know how.
What if I told that you that you are using your task lists ineffectively?
Would that surprise you? Lots of people use task lists every day, but I’d wager plenty of them are going about it the wrong way. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that they don’t even complete their task lists most of the time.
Are you one of them?
Well you don’t have to be. With a few simple tweaks to how you approach your task lists, we can make it so you finish your task lists each and every time.
Maximizing your task list productivity
Here’s what it probably looks like when you set out to complete a task list:
- You take out a piece of paper
- You write down 5+ things you want done
- You write those tasks in vague terms (e.g. find a babysitter, look for a new suit)
- You do them in random order, with no prioritization
- You add new tasks as they arrive
- You don’t finish the list, and still have important things to do on it
Lots of people tackle their tasks lists just like this, even though it’s ineffective. But we can move this past this ineffectiveness by using 5 tips that’ll improve your task list usage and maximize your productivity.
