Chunk to-do’s into submission
To herd your tasks into something manageable, first get them all in one place. Don’t worry about the order, just list everything you can think of. Then rearrange your items into meaningful groups according to timeframe and importance. You might label your most urgent to-do’s as “High alert!” Other groupings could be “Finish by Friday,” “Can wait till tomorrow,” “When I have extra time.” This is your master list to refer to daily and revise as needed so you won’t feel as overwhelmed.
