Dustin M. Wax at www.lifehack.org has a short article on how to make todo listing more organized. Back to Basics: Your Task List has some good ideas to simplify your lists and yet make them more organized and productive.
I like the idea of making each task more specific and complete as in “Call Edith @ xxx-xxx-xxx to see if she signed and mailed her POA papers back to the lawyer” instead of just “Edith.” The first requires less work of my brain and therefore less stress.
I will be adding ‘context’ to each item in the future. My life/day is very compartmentalized so adding @home, @office, etc will make organizing easier.
