New method to choose a task
I am experiment a new method and I'd like to share it with the readers of this forum.
I naturally tend to procrastinate, keep things on my lists and make them longer and longer.
When I look to a LONG list (60+ elements) I feel demotivated and I find hard to choose a task to do.
In the last days I have been trying using a random number generator (http://www.random.org/):
1 - I put the total number of tasks in the generator and obtain a number "x"
2 - I choose the task number "x" in my list (which is ordered alphabetically)
3 - I choose between: Doing the task, Move the task to Someday/Maybe list, Delete the task
4 - After step 3, I go again to step 1.
This forces me to reduce the number of tasks on my list and relieves me the stress to choose.
I don't use it everytime, but when I am at a lower state of energy, it helps me.
Has anyone ever used a similar method?
What do you think of it?
