I listen to this fantastic little podcast about personal finance hosted by people who don’t know very much about personal finance (by their own admission!) called The Payoff by Mic. Chris and Antonia are hilarious and likable hosts, and are essentially learning about various aspects of personal finance and sharing it with us.
The most recent episode was on freelancing, and Chris shared this amazing hack for to-do lists.
If any item makes it past a week on my to-do list, then I break it down into smaller items.
Honestly, that’s brilliant. It increases the likelihood that he’ll actually complete the items, and it increases motivation as he’s checking off more items from his list. Win.
