The To-Do list is my favourite way of ensuring momentum is maintained each day. Things occur to me during the day and overnight, in the shower, and they need to be jotted down. It’s amazing how this creates such energy during the day – being able to tick off jobs done; tasks completed. I even do it for weekends and days’ off.
The next level is to plan a week in advance. And I normally do that on a Friday afternoon. It clears the mind for the weekend and gives me a flying start on Mondays. After all, Friday afternoons tend to be wind-down times, or at least my time is less committed, and so I feel that I have the headspace to plan for the following week, as well as while many open tasks are still top of mind. Good to get them all recorded and listed to offload the mind for a weekend refresh.
