Having a bad memory, I’ve always relied on LISTS.
Often I’ve called them “to-do lists“.
In fact, they are most often “to-don’t lists“. Most never get done. 😕
Charles Duhigg points out the obvious: Most to-do lists are actually “memory lists“. Things you MIGHT want to come back to … later. Probably not.
PRODUCTIVITY means actually completing a high priority task.
Based on Charles Duhigg’s advice, each morning I’ll make an ACTION ITEMS list. Only the 3 highest priority items. I’ll have my Reminders app REMIND me each morning at 9am.
If this works, I’ll expand to Duhigg’s S.M.A.R.T. system. … Hmm. That might be a waste of time, though. Better I simply get the 3 things done. Then move on to whims and low priority tasks as usual. 😀
