Todo lists tend to grow, and grow, and grow, until you finally get disgusted and throw it out and start fresh, and so the cycle repeats. Instead, write down the stuff that you didn't do at the end of the day, and still want to do on a separate page. Now throw the todo list out. Wait a while, or until the next morning. Create a new Todo list, put the things on your mind in today's new list, check yesterdays list to see if any of those items are still worth doing; throw out yesteday's list.

Many people make a "ToDo" list by job time - how long it takes a given task 2 B done, from longest time or shortest time.Some people list things N order as they think of them. I prioritize by what needs 2 B done. A items absolutely have to get done NOW. B items are things that can be done later.
'C' items would be nice to get done - sometime. When A's are done I re-prioritize. Some C items have dropped off. Some new A's may be added. B's have moved to A's or dropped to C's. Always be working on the important tasks in your life and you will be happier. Nit-picky 'C's aren't worth the worry.
For me the weekends are when I am in most danger of going off my plan...so on weekends, I aplan my activities and my ToDo list so that I keep busy, I stay busy accomplishing things so I don't start to just snack or graze because I am bored.
