1. Your to-do list should include both large and small tasks. For example, if you need to follow up on a phone call made earlier, you need to include it because not following up could have profound consequences.

  1. Organize all to-do list tasks by priority, due date, and category. This allows you to attack those equally important tasks.

  1. Make sure you use clear, precise descriptions of each task. Avoid using vague descriptions.

  1. Break larger to-dos into smaller, actionable tasks. This makes sure every task that must be addressed is addressed.

  1. Batch similar tasks together. If you have multiple tasks that are similar, it makes more sense to address them together.

  1. Use a prioritization system, like an Eisenhower matrix.

  1. Plan in advance. Always make the last item on your list a review task.
