What does TTL stand for?

If you’ve used a to-do list before, try dividing your list into 3 sections:

  • Today

  • Tomorrow

  • Later

Every night, I put the next day’s tasks under “today.”

The next morning, I wake up and start checking things off my list, because it’s clearly outlined.

I don’t have to think about it.

But there’s one more thing I do to make this method more effective…

Break your tasks down into subtasks

I noticed I had “make YouTube video” on my list for a while.

It kept getting pushed to “tomorrow.”

And that’s because the task is too big and unclear.

As soon as I broke it down (write script → film → edit → upload), I made progress.

For example, I’d write a video script while walking to the gym.

Then, I’d get home and film.

And so on.
