Less is More with Tasks
A healthy balance of tasks can help you do more
Our to-do list tend to be a representation of our workload.
We typically have between 10–15 tasks to do during our day, with varying priority levels associated to them. The core problem with our task management tends to be with how many we’ve loaded up for our day.Now, don’t get me wrong — getting more done feels better collectively, but let’s be fair to ourselves — unless we’ve had a pretty decent day — it is rare we end up completing all 10–15 tasks — without overloading ourselves.
Normally what happens is we feel overwhelmed because we get to the end of the workday and we have only done 7 of those 15 tasks, and that sometimes that does make us feel under-accomplished.
