Long to-do lists only stress you more. Hide them. After all, you can always take on more tasks from them once you're done with the short list.
A to-do list is a tool - it should help you take action, not stress you out.
1. Make the long list.⠀
2. Select 1-4 items from it and make a separate list.⠀
3. Hide the long list from sight (where it won't stress you).⠀
4. Select 1 item from the short list and start working on it.
Too many tasks on your to-do list?
Here's a short audio mini-lesson to help you:
Work for 10 minutes
Start with something mildly productive, not wildly productive.
If you don't feel like continuing after 10 minutes, take another break.
After your break, you should be in a state of mind that is better for work (less reactive and impulsive).
Understand and get rid off your procrastination habit and live life according to yourself. Simple, practical, no BS tips
