To do lists , so much to do so little time. How to get it all done without feeling overwhelmed? I don’t know about you but at one time I had sticky notes and to do lists everywhere. I have even used napkins and envelopes to jot down my thoughts/ ideas. There has to be a better a way, an easier way.
I decided to buy a notebook, I gathered all my lists, wrote out all my “to dos ” down in the notebook and tackled them. However, I still felt overwhelmed. Then I heard about a technique called the Pomodoro Technique.
Basically, you set a timer for 25 minutes and tackle an item on your list, once the timer goes off you take a short break and repeat. I get antsy or fidgety if I sit for too long, but by using the timer and knowing I have a short time to finish task, I am able to stay focused and and actually cross items off my list. I have to say that is a wonderful feeling. Ahhh the feeling of accomplishment.
How do you get more done?
