Re-evaluate your to-do list each week and delete the tasks that you have been procrastinating about.

  1. Delegate

For team assignments, use software that converts oral comments to a task delegation for other team members.

Reduce the complexity of your to-do list with smaller subtasks. Zoom in and cross off your task accomplishments and zoom out by evaluating your project tasks with bigger goals. Use software tools to meet your to-do list activity.

  1. Batch Templates

Batch your tasks by software that processes your to-do tasks. Create your software tabs for people you need to phone, text, or email and save loads of time!
