I am a maker of lists*. Or rather, of list. I work from a Moleskine diary that is a week to view and divide the facing work sheet page roughly in four. Down the left side are all the things I need to do for work, right is all personal. The lower one third of the page lists campari&sofa posts that need writing on one side, all things house and home on the other.
Each week I prioritise the most urgent tasks, and allot a day. Then I make asterisks alongside the next most pressing, for incase there is time. At the top of the left hand page – the actual dates – I note the week’s Headline tasks. What I am left with is a clear plan (to me at least) of what must be achieved. The system works fine in theory. Life, though, has other ideas and so there is lots of shifting around and reassigning. And I have a code for that – but I won’t bore you with it.
