Creating and sticking to an efficient system of creating, tracking and accomplishing tasks of any size is difficult. Quill.comcreated a great list of tips to tame your task list plus some apps you can download to help your efforts.
Prioritize Most Important Tasks – Not which tasks absolutely must get done today then accomplish them first.
Automate series of tasks– Create action sequences for tasks you accomplish on a regular basis.
Start with the tasks you most dead – Early in the day tackle the tasks that give you anxiety.
Prepare before you start – gather all the necessary materials for a task before you start it.
Eliminate distractions – Close all internet browsers, silence your phone, and sign out of email and social media accounts.
Schedule breaks – Plan for small breaks throughout each day to do something you truly enjoy like taking a 10 minute walk outside.
Start over after lunch – A lot of things can still be accomplished in the afternoon, and doing something sets you up for a less stresful tomorrow.
Create multiple lists – Examples include a list for long-term tasks, one for weekly tasks and one for daily tasks.
Break tasks into manageable chunks – Craft your list so every task requires only one single action.
Make it routine – Schedule recurring tasks for the same time each day.
