I just start at the top or the easiest thing I can get done at the moment, and try to make a dent in the list. I try to not let my to do list get very long though.

One of my approaches is to rank order by importance versus what I would prefer to do that would keep putting off the things I really need to do. I realize sometimes the harder things get put off because of anxiety I might have about doing them.

I try to take it one day at a time to make sure I get everything done and say, I need to get at least X amount of things done today.

And I suppose the list technically never ends, but I draw the line when I can decide if it is really necessary to do.

Write them all down, prioritize them - then get to work! Life happens and some thing go off the list - even when they are not done (dropped priority) and new things crash onto the list.

I'm OK with that - the list will be done when I die - so I have desire to get it all done!

I take some time to just put everything else aside, or stay up later and just get the top few things done, then the next day, make a goal to finish a few more.. It works for me.

I try to tackle at least one item per day. On some days, I will do the bare minimum. Occasionally, I get all crazy and knock out bunches of stuff or something BIG. Either way, I do not let the list overwhelm me or add to my stress level.

I start with the quickest and easiest tasks first. Making the list look smaller, regardless of the work load, is a mental trick that will make you feel less overwhelmed. Then, I'll try to schedule certain days where I can get things done. I ensure that I am not putting too much on my plate at once.

If there is something that needs to be added, I will write it down, regardless of what else has to get done. Whether I add it now or put it off for another week doesn't really make a difference to me.

I pretty much always have an active to do list. It can get really long, but I am usually pretty good at handling it. If there is ever a time where it is stressing me out, I'll ask my boyfriend to look at it and see if there is anything he can help with. He's really good about it and can usually knock a few things off the list for me.

At my age, I don't worry about a "To do list", but instead I focus on my "Bucket list". I still have not crossed off my Ernest Hemingway trip to Africa, to watch the Wildebeest migration across the Serengeti, nor my running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

I tend to mix doing the major stuff with a few smaller tasks so I keep getting the feeling of accomplishment that'll make me fight on
