Enjoy Summer by Maximizing Your Time with a To-Do List

Have more control over your time and own your schedule so that you can enjoy some time off by making sure you stay up to date on your to-do list.

Create a daily to-do list to ensure you take the right steps and complete the necessary tasks. Plan tomorrow’s tasks the evening before to minimize distractions and ensure you get work done.

Plan your entire day and include the small details such as taking 5-minute or 10-minute breaks between tasks. Know what you want to accomplish on any given day and make room for interruptions. If something important and unplanned requires your attention, find a way to attend to it while still getting crucial tasks done.

Schedule breaks in between chunks of work, especially when carrying out difficult tasks that require high levels of concentration or physical strength.

If you have trouble just getting started, use a version of the

 Pomodoro Technique by Francesco Cirillo.

We hope this gives you the motivation to move on to accomplishing the next important goal.
