I love a to-do list. I love day planners, and figuring out what I need to do (preferably for the week when possible, and I’ve made it a point to ensure I have set days of when I know I need to get things done… that being said, sticking to these lists and not forgetting information, and for that matter following the schedule I’ve set for myself is not as easy as I would otherwise like and I’m not always that great at it.
The other day I read an article about the improved benefits of blocking time rather than simply using to do lists and so I tried it or rather tried to block things out except I didn’t end up following that either.
Most of the time I do well enough with a to-do list. I know what needs to be done sooner rather than later, but it doesn’t necessarily mean I get as much done as I know I ought to, which is how I forgot to put the essay up last night even though it was on my list. Or edit a video that I intended to edit the other day for Friday.
I know the more I do it, the better I’ll get but needless to say the struggle is real.
