To do lists

 

A to-do list allows you to capture everything that comes in, whatever thought flies through your head at any time. After that, you could clarify your tasks and make sure that they are actionable with concrete next steps and deadlines. Then, organize your tasks into projects and break down large tasks into subtasks until you get reasonably sized actions. Review your progress regularly, reflect on what’s important to you and review the items on your list. Finally, engage your tasks. Select which action you want to take and execute, and do it.
