I have been using Todoist for the better part of a year now and it’s been terrific for helping me keep track of a lot of my tasks but I’m not using it in the best way for me.
My to do lists still feel too crowded and I find myself delaying certain tasks over and over – which is fine, really, but I am finding it a bit tiresome.
I’m still working on a solution for the task delays but I think I have a solution for the crowding.
Because my to do list is a combination of personal, volunteer, and work information and tasks, there are a lot of bits and pieces to check off every day.
Just in my personal list alone there are about 5-8 things that I try to do every day.
And that really adds up.
So, step 1 in reducing overcrowding on my list is to combine my list of personal recurring tasks into one task called ‘routine.’
By doing that, I can change how my list feels for me. Instead of 22 tasks, I’ll have 14.
I’ll still do all my daily personal things (write a post here, do some journaling) but they won’t be part of the big number in the corner of my app.
I think this will help.
Let’s see how it goes!
