If you’r like most people, you’ve got some tasks on your to-do list that you just dread tackling. If tasks seem overwhelming, it’s usually because you’re looking at them as whole projects, rather than individual tasks. To create an approachable to-do list, break each project down into bite-size, easy-to-complete actions.
For example, planning a launch meeting consists of small tasks like emailing participants and reserving a meeting room. if you write all those small tasks on your to-do list rather than the daunting “plan the launch meeting”, you’ll find them much easier to take care of because each one won’t require much thought or time. Complete enough of these small tasks and your big project will soon be done.
