5. Add it to Your Calendar
Put to-do items on your calendar at home or at work, wherever you’re sure to see them alongside all of your other obligations. Then, if you’re using an electronic calendar or have a alarm on your phone for such things, set up alerts so you’re on top of it all.

6. Disconnect to Connect
When you need to concentrate and really focus on a task, turn off your phone and don’t you dare log in to check email or your social media accounts.

7. Update As You Go
The best to-do lists are always evolving as you complete tasks, add new ones and reorganize what’s on your plate. You should feel free to add on, re-categorize and re-prioritize often. Think of your to-do list as a living, working document.
