To Do Or Not To Do?

How long is your To Do list? I regularly ask people this question, and the record so far is one hundred and thirty four items!

I’ll keep this post very brief, in case your To Do list is also very long! The point is that even if you complete twenty things off a list of fifty or more, you still don’t feel a huge sense of accomplishment because you’ve still got loads to do.

The other problem with a very long list is that it becomes very difficult, and time consuming, to prioritise the items.

I know you can’t just magic away outstanding tasks, but there are some great ways to reduce down that monster list into manageable chunks that ultimately results in greater productivity and much more sense of accomplishment – and those clever research people have long been telling us that when we feel more positive, we do better work!
