To-do list makeover: a simple guide to getting the important things done

To-Do List Makeover: A Simple Guide to Getting the Important Things Done is the ultimate guide creating lists that help you take action. 
It's easy to start each workday with a lengthy list of tasks. Then something unexpected comes up. Next thing you know, the day is almost over. You work hard at a frantic pace, but you end up feeling frustrated because there's not enough time to do everything.

We all write lists with the hope that they will turn us into productivity machines. Sadly, to-do lists often have the opposite effect. The wrong type of list can be de-motivating, causing you to slack off and procrastinate.

The truth is anyone can write a list. The hard part is creating a list that's actionable and also fits into your busy life. More often than not, people fill their lists with a disorganized mess of tasks, wants, needs and random ideas. Then they sit around and wonder why they're not getting significant results in their lives.

The solution is to rethink the way you manage your daily life.

Specifically, you should use multiple lists that cover different types of task. And that’s what is covered in the book: "To-Do List Makeover: A Simple Guide to Getting the Important Things Done."  What you’ll get is a simple step-by-step blueprint for writing effective, actionable lists.  Grab this guide today to learn how to get the important things done.

Why *Most* To-Do Lists Are Limited

Tell me if this sounds familiar: You start each workday with a lengthy list of tasks. There’s a lot to do, but you’re confident that every item can be completed. Then something unexpected comes up. Next thing you know, the day is almost over. You work hard at a frantic pace, but you end up feeling frustrated because there’s not enough time to do everything.

Unfortunately, this is a common experience for many people. We all write lists with the hope that they will turn us into productivity machines. Sadly, to-do lists often have the opposite effect. The wrong type of list can be de-motivating, causing you to slack off and procrastinate.

The truth is anyone can write a list. The hard part is creating a list that’s actionable and also fits into your busy life.

I feel part of our “to-do list problem” stems from a concept called the hot-cold empathy gap. Put simply, it’s easy to forget about the action part when making a list. We all make those promises (like the classic “New Year’s resolution”) that simply can’t be completed on a day-to-day basis. In other words, it’s one thing to create a lengthy list, but it’s a whole other thing to complete tasks when we’re faced with dozens of distractions.

Another problem is that it’s impossible to predict what will happen in the future. While you might start the day with a grand plan to complete an important project, you never know what crisis will arise from that next email or phone call.

When you think about it, the goal of a to-do list is to help you complete important tasks. So my question is: Why do so many people struggle with their time management and personal productivity? I feel the answer lies in how they create their lists and what commitments they make on a daily basis.
