1. List of "not to do"

The method is described by D. Ros. Don't do it. Time management for creative people in Donald Rosa's book "Don't Do It. Time management for creative people". It helps to catch the main thing and understand which things are really important and which can be postponed. All tasks need to be divided into three lists: cases, completed cases and not cases.

The peculiarity is that only three items can be added to the first column — those that you consider the most important or urgent. The rest of the classes are temporarily on the to-do list.

The completed task from the first column should be moved to the list of completed tasks. And then there will be room in the to-do list for a new task that can be moved there from the third group.

2. Running list

It allows you to visually see all the tasks, plans and goals that you have set for yourself for the week on one page of the diary. The method is mainly used by the owners of the Bullet Journal, but any notebook (preferably in a box) is suitable for a running list.

It is necessary to divide the page into two columns. In one there will be days of the week, in the other — business. At the intersection of the task and the day of the week on which it needs to be completed, you draw an empty square. If the job is done, the cell needs to be shaded.

If you have moved the task, draw an arrow in the square, and then draw a new empty square on the corresponding date. Mark the task that you no longer plan to perform with a cross. When the task is not completed to the end, you shade half of the cell.

As a rule, the running list itself takes up one page for a week. The second one can be used to write down goals for the next seven days or draw a habit tracker. More details are shown in the video.

5. List of mantras

For example: "I'm doing exactly as much as I can, and as well as I can at the moment." Or "I may fail, but that's no reason not to try. In any case, I will take valuable experience out of this story."
