Freebie Week: Ultimate To-Do List and Reason #2

It’s Freebie Week here at Sage Grayson Coaching!

I’m featuring a different freebie each day and counting down the top 5 reasons why you should sign up for a free Ready, Set, Go! coaching call.

Today’s Freebie: Ultimate To-Do List

In addition to not focusing on our most important/most urgent priorities (see Tuesday’s freebie, the Where Does My Time Go? worksheet), we can sometimes lose sight of the big picture of what we want to accomplish in our lives.

The Ultimate To-Do List worksheet helps you un-jumble your thoughts and figure out what tasks and activities really deserve your attention.

How It Works

  • In the first section, write down all of the to-dos that are in your head. Don’t worry about putting them in order or grouping them into categories. Just do a complete “brain dump.”
  • Next, choose your 3 main priorities for the week. Be realistic with yourself. Choosing any more than 3 main priorities will set you up to feel rushed and stressed. Really think about what’s most important and what could wait until next week.
  • Finally, give yourself 3 mini tasks to do every day that lead you closer to accomplishing your 3 main goals for the week. Baby steps are awesome, people! You can accomplish a lot by doing just a little a day.

    Oooh yeeeees! You know I love my lists, especially to do lists 😉 Love this worksheet, I’ll definitely have to print it out! Thanks!

      I’m a big list-writer too. This is the actual to-do list formula I use every day.

    This is a great worksheet and activity to be able to help prioritize our to-dos for the day. I like the idea of a brain dump and then re-organizing from there. Heather

      Thanks, Heather! I’m much more focused after I do a brain dump and get everything out of my head. I also recommend limiting the number of daily to-dos to 3. Anymore than that and I set myself up for failure.
