But we end up writing too many to-do items and spend a lot of time on unwanted or unneccessary jobs on the list. Seeing our lengthy list, we might become frustrated and un-productive by the end of the day!! :(
So here is a good way to write our to-do lists:
# Have one HIT list - High Impact Tasks. Tasks which has to be finished today at any cost and has a higher impact when completed on the same day.
# Prioritize your To - Do list and give priority rating in front of the item. Do not waste time on low priority jobs.
# Have a Master list that has long term tasks to be completed but not important right now, like hiring someone into the team, researching about new tool, etc.
# Most Important - Write down tasks which is not to be done :)
Like *Don't take up mundane jobs rather than delegating to subordinates, *Don't deal with work issues during personal time, *Don't fall prey to perfectionism *Don't micromanage * Don't keep checking your mails the whole day, mails do not come with a priority tag attached.
