Are you a fan of to do lists? I am, particularly if I need to do a lot of small tasks. On those occasions, not only does it stop you forgetting one of the tasks, but it also gives a sense of achievement when you cross them all off. Instead of feeling you’ve messed around doing nothing all morning, you can see the long list of useful things you have done.
For longer tasks, it can be more complicated. You need to mark off some kind of progress, but you can’t cross it off the list, because it isn’t finished yet.
If that is your problem, then try this circles system. It lets you mark off the level of progress on stages of a project in a really simple way.
