Divide Up Tasks Into Smaller Ones When You Feel Overwhelmed
Divide up tasks into smaller bits when your to-do list appears overwhelming or impossible. Breaking up large tasks into smaller, more manageable chunks can help you actually get moving on those scary priorities you've been putting off.
Example of How to Divide Up Tasks
Currently, I need to divide up tasks because I'm behind on my taxes; I haven't finished mine from two years ago. Finishing those taxes has been consistently on my to-do list, and has consistently moved lower in priority. I didn't really know where to start.
Dividing this task up into smaller pieces has helped me move forward, but more importantly, has helped with my self-esteem. I feel great when I get to knock several items off my list at once, rather than ignore one big one. I divided this task into smaller ones like:
- Print out that year's credit card statements
- Highlight business expenses
- Put those business expenses into categories
- Send expenses to the person preparing my taxes
