Tip for time management: master the energy of lists

Time management, in its center, is a to-do list. I understand what you're thinking. Don't close the tab.

Seriously, do not. 

There's more to a to-do list than writing down the stuff you have to perform (which, by itself, is useful to visualize your goals). A good time management list will never include vagueness.  Instead, it's used to diversify tasks, goals, and jobs. 

Projects, Tasks, and Goals

Let's look at an example: 

Doing something important like learning a new vocabulary, mastering digital painting, or even becoming a chef at a fancy restaurant is a project. It's something you strive towards. 

Think about it like this. You want to become a developer. Learning to code is the project. Finishing a book on communicating in C# or even Java is a target as it is something that you need to perform if you want to succeed with the stated project.  

Understanding this diversification is critical to utilizing time management tools effectively.
