    • 16. Activity: Daily Plans
      • Get out a sheet of paper and make a to-do list of all the specific things you’d like to get done tomorrow.
      • Beside each item, place one of the following letters
        • A: for what must be done tomorrow
        • B: for what should be done or you’d like to get done
        • C: for what can easily be postponed a day or two
      • Now look at your B items. Place these into either the A list or the C list.
    • 17. Activity: Daily Plans
      • Transfer your top-priority tasks (your A’s) onto a slip of paper or a notepad.
      • As the day goes by, refer to your list and complete your A tasks as you can, crossing off each one as soon as it’s done.
      • Tip: many people write their to-do list for tomorrow’s tasks at the end of each day, as this eliminated lying in bed worrying about forgetting something
