Don’t-Miss Tips on To-Do Lists

As an ADD Coach, I talk about to-do lists a lot. I know the concept makes some people cringe, but when you really learn how to work with them, in a way that works for you, I can guarantee that your outlook will change.  Try this out and let me know what you think. Start with really small lists. Put 2-3 items on your list each day, no more. Chose items that will take no longer than 20 minutes to accomplish. If you have a big project to complete, don’t write that down. Instead, write down a task from that big project that will take about 20 minutes. I like using the 3.5 x 5.5 tablets available at office supply stores. A fun pen with your favorite colored ink dedicated to list-making is nice too. And remember, lists can be made up of positive things to do, not just the things you loathe.
