NOT WRITTEN DOWN: Capture all your tasks and open loops by writing everything down. Don’t worry about organization or prioritization first – your mind is for thinking, not remembering.
NO FOCUS: Prioritize and stick to three main tasks each day. Do them in order of important and urgency.
TOO GENERAL: Make sure each task is relevant to your goals. Make them specific and manageable.
NO TIME BLOCKING: Assign each task to a set timeframe within your day. Avoid multi-tasking and focus on deep work.
NO REST PERIOD: Schedule rest periods between each task. Take note of the length (how long)and quality (what you do) to maximize each rest period.
