A simple time management trick: Just 3 things

May 22, 2019

Do this:

  • Write down just 3 things that you need to do. No more, no less
  • They should be small enough that each one is achievable in less than an hour
  • Pick one, do it
  • Don't add anything else to the list until all three are done
  • If you get distracted, bring your attention back to the task

Too often, we make to do lists that are too long to finish. So we start the day feeling out of control and end the day unhappy with what we've done.

But by reducing the list to three, it becomes possible to finish everything and feel good before starting on the next tasks.
