Still struggling to find a way to manage your to-do list? Why not take a step back and use the 1-3-5 rule (from the daily muse). The concept is simple. Don’t overburden yourself with a long to-do list instead pick 9 things to do on a daily basis – I large thing, 3 medium things and 5 small things.
By only adding to your to-do list items that you can realistically check off in a single day – you will feel more productive and more in control of your to-do list.
