I’ve been thinking about productivity a lot lately. This is an interesting list. I don’t necessarily agree with “To-Do List Zero” as a concept, though. Life and work get in the way and when you focus on getting your list to zero, you’re working on your list and not on your work. And prioritization is complicated. If it’s on my list, it’s a priority. If it’s not on the list, it’s not important. For me, importance is a binary.
But in general, the first three to-do list concepts are solid:
- Take it everywhere
- Capture everything
- Break it up in small tasks and make them actionable
