In the past couple of weeks, I’ve really been bogged down by what I consider to be a biggish to-do list. I don’t think that I’m unique in this and most of you too would have similar or even bigger to do lists.
My advice for getting through those to do lists? Just pick on item and handle them one at a time.
Whilst that may sound silly, I realized recently that it doesn’t help to get stressed about the things that just never disappear of the list. Instead, I wake up every morning, get to the office and simply pick the thing that jumps at out me from the list and handle that. When done, I just move onto the next one.
So whilst this may be the most stupid GTD / productivity tip you have ever heard, just consider that sitting around, trying to plan and trying to prioritize your to do list, only means that they keep piling up…
