I have found a new method to get things done this year, we all do the same trick of writing a list and check things out as we do them, but this year I got a better version of that method. It's pretty simple actually but will make you feel like you have accomplished even more at the end of the day.

STEP ONE // Identify the most important thing you need to do that day.

STEP TWO // Continue your list making sure to write the most important things to do on top.

STEP THREE // Always take care of your most important task first.

The reason that you should take care of the most important item on the list first is that once it's done, you will feel like you have accomplished more that if you had crossed of 4 or 5 things that have less importance. Once the most important task is done, you will be left with small little tasks that can be taken care of much easier!

Here is an example:
✔ Prepare the menus for the week
☐ Do the laundry
☐ Paint nails
☐ Take clothes for donation
☐ Make bed

Once you have the most time consuming / hardest task of the way, the rest will come easy, and at the end of the day you won't feel so stressed out if you can't find the time to do to your most important task!

  2. Eu sempre faço isso quando tenho alguma tarefa chata pra fazer, como algo burocrático ou repetitivo, e eu falo mentalmente: eat the frog! uma vez que fiz o que era mais chato, o resto é quase automático!

    1. Eu fazia o contrario, tratava das coisas mais rápidas e fáceis e depois acabava por ficar com o mais importante por fazer. Mas agora ja aprendi a lição :P

  4. Eu faço listas do que pretendo fazer mas não costumo colocar por ordem de importância, embora acabe sempre por fazer primeiro o que tem maior prioridade ou é mais urgente. Mas é uma boa ideia focar-se logo no que é a prioridade e deixar o restante para mais tarde ou até outro dia :) Gostava de fazer um post assim para cada mês, com as boxes para checkar, sabes onde posso encontrar algum post no teu blogue ou noutro blogue com o código html? Sei que dá para fazer este tipo de coisas no excel ou acess mas não queria agora meter-me nisso.

    1. Normalmente o que me acontecia era fazer sempre o mais rápido/fácil e acabava por ficar com o mais importante em atraso.
