08/11/2017: TIPS FROM TOP CEOS TO CRACK YOUR TO-DO LIST (FROM FAST COMPANY)
Here is a sampling of how several very different CEOs manage their to-do lists in very different ways – they won’t all work together so try out whatever fits your style.
1.Make your to-do list as short as possible. Use a single sticky note and list no more than three to eight things. This CEO actually writes her top thing right on her hand so she looks at it all day long until it gets done.
2.Tackle only what you can memorize and only rarely write things down.
3.Use a computer app like Evernote, Google Keep or Gmail to list your to-do things. That way if it’s still listed, it still must be done, and it’s not a paper laying around to get stuck to the bottom of your shoe.
4.Carry a notebook with you always to record to-dos in a list and cross them off as you complete them. Never ever be without that book. Maybe create an “Ideas” page near the back to track things that come to mind that you should consider at a future time.
5.Delegate! Give your multitude of tasks to a human assistant or even an AI email assistant such as Clara to help with your scheduling. (Clara is a software that lives inside your email so instead of telling Siri what to do, you CC Clara on your email and it gets scheduled.)
6.Prioritize. Make sure your daily to-do lists include things that take care of YOU.
