What To Do About Never Ending To-Do Lists
If you’re an entrepreneur, chances are you have a never ending to-do list about a mile long. And it’s easy for that to cause stress and frustration (and maybe even feelings of inadequacy). Here are three ways to deal with it.
1) Admit it will never all be done. It just won’t. So quite working all hours in a futile effort to do it all, or feeling overwhelmed or guilty when it isn’t.
2) Break it up. Giant to-do lists are hard to deal with. So break yours down in order of importance. Then each day make a shorter list of just what you’re going to do today, starting with what is most important.
3) Outsource albatross items. You know those tasks that need to be done, but you somehow never seem to get to? Those are albatross items on your to-do list because they’re a burden on your psyche. Either admit you don’t need to do them, or hire someone else—like a Virtual Assistant—to get them done
