- Review your To-Do Now and To-Do Later lists and decide which tasks need to be done today, and which should be worked on later.
- Use a Weekly Organizer to hold To-Do Later materials for each day of the week. The slash pocket dividers keep papers secure and easily visible.
- Keep the Weekly Organizer on your desk or in a nearby drawer where it is easily accessible.
- Assign each To-Do Later task to your calendar.
- Place materials needed to complete each task in the pocket that matches the weekday you assigned for follow-up.
- Each day, review all tasks assigned to that day. Add the tasks to your daily To-Do Now list, or assign to a later date for follow-up. Move any reassigned To-Do materials in the weekly organizer to the pocket for the new day.
- Select tasks to work on based on their priority on your To-Do Now list.
- At the end of the day, move materials for any uncompleted tasks to a pocket for another day. Mark the schedule change on your calendar.
