The Only 3 Lists You Need to Get Stuff Done
The more into lists you are, the more important this is. Simplify your life and only have three lists.
Copy my simple system to create book summaries so you can remember what you read months, even years, after reading.
Keep three and only three lists: a To-do List, a Watch List, and a Later List.
Here‘s what to have in each one:
#1 To-do List
All the stuff you "must" do - commitments, obligations, things that have to be done.
A single list, possibly subcategorized by timeframe (today, this week, next week, next month).
#2 Watch List
All the stuff going on in your life that you have to follow up on, wait for someone else to get back to you on, remind yourself of in the future, or otherwise remember.
#3 Later List
Everything else - everything you might want to do or will do when you have the time or wish you could do.
If it doesn‘t go on one of those three lists, it goes away.
