What’s on your todo list says a lot about you. It determines what you will get done and what you will remember to do. Some people keep lists of any and all task that come their way. Others only write down the few tasks they know they can do today.

任务清单上有哪些任务很能说明问题。这决定你能完成什么,又记住了什么。有人不管遇到什么都事无巨细记下来,有些人却只记下当天能完成的任务。

What do you put on your todo list?

你的任务清单都有哪些内容?

Some write down only the things they know will get done. Others write down what they completed and then immediately check the items off. (Kind of a reverse todo list.)

有人只写下自己能够完成的任务;而有些人却记下已经完成的任务并立刻划掉。(貌似有点反向运用的感觉。)

You shouldn’t be afraid to add things to your list. Adding a task to your list shouldn’t be looked at as a burden or hard commitment. Rather, it is a way to track your tasks. Let your list remember your tasks, so that you don’t have to keep them all in your head.

不要害怕往清单上添加任务。增加清单任务并不是什么负担或多么严肃的承诺。其实,这只是管理任务的一种方法。用笔头记下任务,这样就不必全部塞在脑子里。

Here are 10 Things That Should Be On Your Todo List Today:

下面这10件事,就该列在今天的任务清单上。


1. The Task You Will Forget

容易忘记的任务

Your todo list should have your back so that you don’t have to remember all your tasks. Get them out of your head and on your list. You can concentrate on the task at hand and come back to the other items later.

任务清单即备份,这样你就不必记住所有事情了。想到什么就赶紧记到任务清单上吧。你可以先集中做好手头任务,然后再去处理其他事情。


2. The Things You Absolutely Must Do Today

当天必须搞定的事情

Put your non-negotiable tasks at the top of your list. Or highlight or star them. Whatever you need to do to make it immediately visible what tasks you must get done today.

把必须完成的任务写在任务清单开头,或者打五角星做标记。当天必须完成的任务一定要利落显眼。


3. The New Habit

新习惯

Forming habits is hard. Add the positive habits you are trying to develop by putting them right on your todo list. Checking them off will help you build lasting behaviors.

习惯的养成很难。把你正努力养成的好习惯记到任务清单上,时常检讨,这样才能长久维持。


4. The Step Towards Your Goal

实现目标的具体计划

Big goals don’t happen overnight. Rather, they happen step-by-step and day-by-day. Make sure you have a daily step towards your big goal on your todo list. Every day.

宏伟目标不可能一夜成功,而是一点一天努力而成的。请把实现目标的具体计划落实到每天的任务清单上。


5. The Menial Task

鸡毛蒜皮小事

Don’t be afraid to write even the simplest tasks on your list. It will help you remember them (See #1), and it feels great when you check them off.

别嫌烦,鸡毛蒜皮小事也可以写到清单上,以免你一时忘掉(参考第1条);而且搞定并划掉它们时感觉特爽。


6. The Promise You Made to Someone

对他人的承诺

How many promises do you break simply because you forget them? When you promise to do something for someone else, immediately write it down on your list. Your todo list can double as your promise list.

多少次,你因为忘记而没能兑现承诺?当你向别人许下承诺时,请立刻记到任务清单上,你的任务清单也可以充当承诺单。


7. The Task You Delegated

委派的任务

Just because you delegated a task to someone else does not mean that you can forget about it. Keep the delegated task on your list until you have confirmation that it is completed.

就算你把任务分配给别人做,也并不表示你会忘记它。把委派的任务留在清单上,确定完成后再删除。


8. The Task You Need to Do For Yourself

个人私事

We tend to put things on our list that we need to do or owe to others. It is just as important to put tasks down that you owe yourself. What do you need to do to take care of you? Add it to your list.

我们任务清单上的事情常常是不得不做的事情或答应他人的事情。其实你自己的私事也很重要。你想做点什么来犒劳自己?写下来吧。


9. The Task with a Deadline

有期限的任务

Tasks with a specific deadline should always be on your list. Make sure that you always put the due date right on your list, so that you won’t be asking yourself later, “When is that due?”

有具体期限的任务必须记到清单上。一定要把预定日期记下来,这样你就不会犯迷糊:“预定日期是什么时候来着?”


10. The Answer You Are Waiting For

一直等待的答复

When you are waiting on an answer or response, add a follow-up task to your list. Tip: Don’t use the silly email yourself trick. It only clogs your inbox. Instead, add it to your todo list where it belongs.


如果你有未到答复,那就在清单上记下跟进任务。不要搞什么“给自己发邮件”的玩意儿,以免收件箱堵塞。还是规规矩矩写在清单上吧。
