Melbourne, Oct 30: An expert has claimed that to-do lists are nothing but useless when it comes to getting work done.
Daniel Markovitz, president of TimeBack Management, wrote in a blog post that long list of tasks simply set one up for failure and frustration, News.com.au reported.
Two big reasons why to-do lists fail to help us accomplish tasks is because we are faced with too many choices and prioritise choices that take shorter amounts of time, he said.
Markovitz asserted that to-do lists also don't provide sufficient context to tell you what you should work on and when, based on how long the task will take and how much free time you have.
Finally, people tend to do pleasant tasks over the most important or difficult, Markovitz added. (ANI)
