FAQ where I answer these questions:


  • Does doing 1 thing a day really work?
  • But I DO have a lot to do, when do I do all the rest of my stuff?
  • Why a mindmap?
  • How do I find relevant projects?
  • How long should the projects be?
  • What is a good outcome for a project?
  • Why just 3 projects? I have so many ideas!
  • Why not just 1 project until it’s completed?
  • How much time should I spent on my projects?
  • How do I use the next actions list properly?
  • What if I don’t hit my weekly milestone?

    Hi, I have a question. It seems like the duration/difficulty/impact scores don’t leave a lot of room for difficult tasks, even though difficult tasks could be the key to success. For example, one of the things I know I must get done is to complete revisions on my first novel. I know I cannot reach my goal of becoming a published author unless I do this. But given how difficult and time consuming this project is, it scores lower than 10 on our relevancy scale. What am I missing?

    • I think the key thing for such tasks is to break the time duration down. You can revise for 10, 20, or 30 minutes and you’ll still revise. You might not get that much done, but it’s a start. What you’ll find is that 30 minutes of revisions are easier to tackle, but you’ll end up doing more because in those 30 minutes you’ll get into the flow and voila, it’s 2 hours later and you’ve revised a whole lot more than you planned to. MITs are the minimum bar you set, so to speak, expecting to go over as you build the habit.
