I have days where I really get to it and I can get tons of stuff done. I have other days where the day drags on and I feel like nothing gets accomplished at all. (With all of the life stuff I’ve been feeling a lot more of the latter.) Today I’m going to tell you about how I keep track of what needs to get done and I’d like to hear your ideas! (By the way, if you have a method that works really well and want to maybe write up a guest post about it, I’d love to feature it here. You can use my contact page.)
My current method is pretty simple. I have a Notepad document up and I type a list of what needs to be done. When I finish something, I write DONE next to it. At the end of the day, I remove all of the things that are done and look over what didn’t get done. Anything that still really needs to get done like work for a client or my weekly Squidoo lens stays on there. Things that I don’t want to carry on to the next day get removed. For example, if one of my tasks was to write a Zujava leaf I would probably remove it rather than letting my list just get longer.
That’s how I do my main daily tasks. I also have other lists for things. For example, I always keep a list of my projects and have a list for each project detailing what needs to get done. My daily list may say “SquidsPro task” and I’ll go to my SquidsPro list and pick a task to do.
It works okay for me but I’m always interested in how other people stay organized.
How do you stay on task and organized?
P.S. Some updates on some things I’ve been getting asked about via email.
- My 50% off sale at PLR Content Market has been extended until Saturday. Use the coupon code “VDAY” for 50% off of everything including the new reports I released and all of my gardening PLR.
- I’m still making and selling starter Squidoo lenses to raise money to visit my grandpa more. I plan to visit him every week, sometimes twice a week, for however long he has left and that means I’ve gotta pay for gas and food.
- The SquidsPro lensmaking challenge is still going. You can join and stop whenever you want. It’s just a way for lensmasters to connect and work towards a common goal.
- I’ve got an interesting “challenge” idea in my head. I’m going to flesh it out and share it with you next week. It’s something that won’t take too much time out of your day but could be really helpful to all of you.
- I’m currently trying to pick a new Squidoo guide/book to review on SquidsPro. If you have any ideas, let me know.
