I recently took a look at my to-do list and found that it was always too long. My solution was to break my list down into smaller portions and do a little bit each day. I limit my to-do list for each day to five things. This was a workable solution to the never ending list and found that I had a sense of accomplishment each day when the list was done. The beauty of a personal assistant is being able to finish your to-do list by having your personal assistant do the things that you would otherwise spend a lot of your free time getting done. There are some things that you will have to ultimately do yourself like renew your driver’s license. However, wouldn’t it be nice to have your personal assistant tell you what day of the week and when the Department of Motor Vehicles lines are the shortest so you can get it done fast. In addition, a personal assistant can help you prioritize and manage your to-do list so you don’t have to.
One thought on “Limiting your to-do list to get it done”
That is a good idea! I have a lot of trouble keeping my to-do list to a manageable size. It is an ongoing battle. I have been trying to use a program called Things (for the Macintosh) that seems to be associated with the book “Getting Things Done”, which helps create a framework from which to organize and then accomplish your work. Even though my to-do list still needs work, at least it is organized!
