5 Easy Ways to Whittle Down Your To-Do List

Uncategorized Feb 04, 2020

Good Morning, Kendall!

It's the last Tuesday in January for 2020 and this is one of those times of year when our to-do list feels a mile long, we are overwhelmed and we wonder how we're going to get it all done.

Juggling what we have to do with with what want to do plus all of little bits and surprises throughout our day can be quit the challenge.

I can definitely relate to being "busy" all day and then at the end of the day feeling like you didn't get anything done!

I've learned that this is a matter of priority management vs time managementand I wanted share my 5 "D" Method to help you whittle down your to-do list as we tackle this last week in January!

The 5 "D" Method:

  1. Dump

  2. Delegate

  3. Defer

  4. Delete

  5. Do

* You can save the image below and use it as a reference any time you need it!


  • Brain dump everything you feel like you have to on a sheet of paper
  • Just let the pen flow and see what comes up


  • Who can help you?  Even if they don't do it exactly the way you would do it by the way
  • This can save you massive amounts of time and stress and energy
  • This also allows you to focus on your strengths and allows others 


  • Reschedule anything that does not need to be completed today
  • Ask yourself if the task "urgent". If it isn't, defer it


  • Remove anything on your list that you don't need to do
  • We usually have tasks on our lists that we do not need to do at all


  • Take ACTION!
  • What's left on your list are the tasks that you can DO
  • Aim to keep your daily total to 5 tasks or less
  • Yes, You CAN!!!

You can apply this 5 "D" Method to any to-do or task list! Try it out and see how quickly your overwhelm decreases and your productivity increases!! 

If you'd rather listen to these tips or get more insight on how to apply this 5 "D" method, checkout the video below. ⬇️

P.S. Every Monday I'm going LIVE to share my tips on how to have a FIERCE Week so if there's something you're struggling with, reply to let me know & I'll share solutions for you!

You got this and I've got your back!
