ok, ok, just kidding. That never works.
Maybe pass some off to a pier or subordinate?
Split the list in, should be done yesterday, todo and future and make sure the first is the smallest.
Then don’t do anything except the first.
If new tasks arrive, add to appropriate list but do not let the first one grow.
Once the first shrinks, move new tasks up.
Best is if the first never include more than you thing you can do in one or two days.
Are you looking for a "project management" solution?
What sort of tasks are they? Who assigns them? How structured and detailed are they?
Quirinus4586dTag every task with a priority rating and difficulty rating. Color code them.
I have a friend that made a nice list in Excel (xD), column for name, priority, difficulty, and comments. Priority and difficulty are color coded, and dropdowns. Then you can filter and sort them at will. It works nicely.
Solve easy high priority first.
Leave low priority and difficult for later.
The others, do them depending on your mood.
