    I fucking hate to-do lists.

    The only time I use them is if I'm managing a team, and then it's a list of tasks I've delegated (and to whom) or to-be-delegated

    If I'm using them for myself, then they're counterproductive. They make me less effective. But that's because of my particular flavor of neurospicy and if your neurospicy is a different flavor then ymmv

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    now today my role as a writer has been to answer a million requests for one sliders on different topics or do similar coordinating bullshit and I would be really ok with that being done by an AI because this information exists on our sharepoint and why do I keep having to remix it for you?

    idk

    some work is bullshit and some work is not bullshit, and some work is not bullshit but boring anyway

    I have a todo list for work in a word document

    if I didn’t have it I would lose track of all the various requests and ongoing things

    for home I uhh email myself reminders sometimes and ignore them, and paste a whole bunch of stuff including todos, concert dates, links to interesting patterns, etc, in several completely disorganized notes documents

    I cared for a senior citizen Maine Coon for a few months and the fluff was unrelenting.

    I have a daft rube goldberg spreadsheet that applies inscrutable formulas to put tasks in an order

    But the only things I input to it are the task itself, a notional date by which I want to have done it, and a number (related tasks get the same number, and I increment it when I get a new tasks, so older tasks have a lower numbers)

    The main thing I get out of it is that they're in some kind of order so that something bubbles to the top of the list, and I do that thing instead of sinking into a mire of indecision paralysis

    It's the most effective tool I've found to deal with being pulled in several directions at once

    To-do lists are useful, unless my adhd makes me forget I wrote a to-do list.

    I'm just struggling with this transition in work duties, is all. Some days I get to buckle down, do research. Other days I feel like I'm still putting out fires or helping the team out. And of course there are the constant meetings/interruptions, which are picking up as I have been passing off my duties. I constantly get asked "Hey, [Ath], how do you do this?" -- which I don't mind doing, but it pulls me away from actually doing work. Which doesn't help when I stare at the screen trying to decide what to work on...

    Blah. I need to get back to my counselor. It has been far too long. But at least I made a 2 page long tasklist... and sent that to my boss going "It's that time again, WTF do I focus on?"

    I mostly brute-force the Reminders app on my phone to make lists

    It’s pretty stupid that I have to do it like that though, it should be the easiest thing in the world to do in a native app

    Also obsessing over finding the right productivity and organizational tools is very classic avoidant behavior, and at some point you have to cut yourself off and just use something simple and accessible that you already have.

    Anyways, it's the end of the day.. I felt myself almost falling asleep earlier today despite getting plenty of rest. Tomorrow's an in-office day so I get to look at my whiteboard and compare it to what I just did.

    My BFF and I will occasionally text each other cool organizational tools and be like "if I buy this one it will fix all my organizational problems forever right?". Like the time we both convinced each other to buy Rocketbooks.

    Weaver update for in case you didn't see it elsewhere
    Didn't go to the ER until yesterday but turns out I had a pulmonary embolism in my lower right lung Thursday night, so that's one thing that's still got me messed up and is gonna take a good while to come back from it seems, and now this morning my partner tested positive for covid; details about isolation being difficult can be found in the covid thread. At least we got to see a Star Wars burlesque show on Saturday, which while fun was rather difficult with an undiagnosed blood clot in my lung.

    Also I didn't get that job from last week.

    actually i looked it up and its $10 a year or $30 one time cost to use that version

    seems like people are losing their minds over having another subscription while ignoring that very reasonable one time cost

    I am fighting off an episode of extreme demotivation when it comes to getting shit done for work. One of my projects is progressing well and everything else is falling by the wayside and I can recognize this is happening but I'm having a hard time doing anything about it.

    Is this what people mean by "executive disfunction" cause I absolutely hate this part of my personality/me as a person.

    Well, there's different kinds of executive dysfunction and they can exist separately or together

    My personal problem is lack of motivation. I can remember everything I need to do. But mustering up the spoons to do it is difficult. If I have to do too much in a given day, I end up exhausted and angry and nonfunctional.

    So for me making a to-do list just saps one of the spoons I could have otherwise used to finish a real task.

    But other people have executive dysfunction where they can't remember what they need to do, or they get so hyperfocused on one task that they don't leave themselves time for other necessary tasks. A to-do list can be helpful.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
