This is a simple system that Steve Chandler and Michael Neill described. I have been using this system with successes. It’s really a simpler version of 80/20 principle (Pareto principle).

  1. Get two pieces of paper.
  2. On the first page, write the words “The only thing I have to do today is . . .”
  3. On the second page, make a fairly comprehensive to-do list—anything you can think of that you want to get done in the next week or so.
  4. When it’s time to begin working through your list, choose one item to work on first. Rewrite it on the first page. For example: The only thing I have to do today is . . . finish reading this journal article.
  5. Actually do whatever you’ve written down as if it’s the only thing you have to do today.
  6. When you complete that item, cross it off on both lists and repeat Steps 4 to 6.
