Episode 23: How to Make Your To-Do Lists Less Overwhelming

Consider that your to-do list isn’t overwhelming because of the amount of tasks on it. Rather, it’s the way you captured your to-dos that is causing you stress and anxiety.

In this week’s episode, Justin shows you how to avoid listing vague and large tasks, and instead write down the very next action you need to accomplish. This clarity in the way you capture is key to being more productive.
