One of the biggest reasons people are often overwhelmed by their to-do list is that they put projects on their list and not tasks.
Task: Something you can complete with one action step (e.g., make doctors appointment
Project: Something that needs more than one action step to be completed (e.g., create freebie)
It takes dozens of action steps to get from the idea of “I want to create a freebie” to actually launching it.
- market research
- what freebie to create
- the creation (writing, design, layout, …)
- all the backend stuff
- email sequences
just to name a few
Having something on your to-do list like “create freebie “can be overwhelming.
It can make you feel like, “Ahhh – I don’t want to do that,” and you procrastinate.
Breaking it down into single action steps makes it so much more doable and way less overwhelming:
To-Do List for today
To-Do List for today
- brainstorm freebie ideas
- market research – do poll on Instagram
- write the first draft of the welcome sequence
Another big advantage of this is that you can actually tick things off your to-do list.
Something like “freebie” you’ll probably move from one day to another for weeks.
You will also have a more realistic view of what you get done in a day and a feeling of accomplishment.
Before you start a new project, break it down into single-action steps and put these steps on your to-do list.
It’s ok if you can’t think of everything upfront. You can add as you go.
If this project is something you do more than once, make yourself a checklist or template so that you don’t have to think of every action step again the next time.
