I have too many things to do. I have a whole long list of things I want to do in WoW, but not enough time in which to do them. So I handle this by making a list. This is my ‘to do’ list for this ‘reset’ (i.e. today to next Tuesday).
World of Warcraft
- Run Brynna through both parts of LFR
- Go to Baradin Hold with Brynna
- Cap Brynna’s Valor Points
- Run Akandra through both parts of LFR
- Finish collecting enough Love Tokens to buy two more bird mounts on Brynna and Hesttia
- Go to Baradin Hold on Akandra
- Run Enalla through both parts of LFR
- Start gearing Morrighan for LFR
- Get Brynna to level 43
- Get my Biochem caught up to my Bioanalysis
- Do the Colicoid War Game Flashpoint
The trick to a good list to to make it achievable. The ‘optional’ parts represent the fact that I probably don’t have time to to all of those. I should have time to do the rest.
How to write ‘to do’ lists
I use three kinds of ‘to do’ lists – daily lists, weekly lists and master lists. A master list is a big long list of everything you need to do. Its useful, but often overwhelming. You need to break it down into manageable pieces.
For gaming I do a weekly list, like the list above. For work, I do a daily list. At the start of each week I plan tasks for each day and everything else goes on a list for next week. I revise these each day.
