✅ 1. Choose Tasks

The first port of call is tasks.

It’s fair to say we have too many tasks on our lists. This isn’t the problem. Our attention to each task is the problem. With Bento, we recommend you pick 3 tasks for your day, this tends to be the optimum amount of tasks — not too little, and not too much.

So what about your 3 tasks? What should I choose?

As part of the Bento Method, we’d recommend 3 tasks — one large one, one medium one, one small one.

  • 🍣 A large task consists of a task that is 90+ minutes, with a need for deep focus — that means as little distraction as possible including meetings.
  • 🍚 A medium task consists of a task between 45–60 minutes, with a medium level of energy and focus, but not all your attention.
  • 🥗 A small task is an easy win consisting of a task up to 30-minutes, with a small task it can be an administrative task or a personal wellbeing time.

Limiting yourself to 3 tasks — broken into 3 compartments is a more relaxed way to approach a workday. With the goal of reducing task overload and improving chances of feeling successful at the end of a long workday.
