One of their recent blog posts included several tips on how to better utilize a to-do list. It is common knowledge that one of the most powerful tools to enhance personal levels of productivity are to-do lists. In order to best take advantage of these powerful tools, it is important that you approach them in an organized and systematic manner.
Create your to-do list the night before. It is very common to wait to create your task list until the morning of the day that you require it. If you are able to create it in advance, you will be able to start your day by being productive immediately in the morning. In the process of creating your to-do list, you should also make sure to get any possible task list. This will prevent you from becoming distracted later in the day.
Once you have every possible task on your list, you can then go through and delegate them more effectively. In order to do this in the most efficient way possible, you should organize the tasks on your list. First, organize your to-do list in order of the priority of the tasks on the list. After you have completed this, you should then go through the tasks and eliminate ones that you perceive as low value. The remaining tasks on the list can then be organized in terms of the energy level required to complete them so you can best delegate them to your personal peaks of energy.
