Good idea
I often find myself with a big ass list of things that need to get done and when I sit down to tackle it I have no clue what I'm doing. I think focusing on three things will help me greatly in prioritizing my work.
Mile long todo list.
My to-do list is a mile long and a mile deep. I would love to get just three things done each day

Three things
I like the idea of focusing on just three things to do everyday.
This is exactly what we’re taught in ADHD workshops to conquer overwhelm. 3 things
workshops - not more than 3 things a day on your To Do list to avoid overwhelm.
Just write 3’things on my to do list. To increase productivity. Each day write 3 things I want to achieve. No more

Establishing the strategy today! Going to list and live! Making a promise to myself and plan to hold myself accountable l!!
I do employ this strategy but have a list of 10 things to complete each day. Too many i find.
Simplify. List only 3 things this will improve focus and inspire a sense of achievement
Choose 3
A major factor of feeling overwhelmed is having a large to-do list. We might accomplish 1 task, only to add 5 more to the list. That list is mixed with tasks that range from needing to get done, and wanting to get done if we can get to it. By choosing 3 things to get done in a day, it gives us a chance to mindfully prioritize important tasks and not worry about cleaning out the list. We may surprise ourselves and get more done than we actually thought.
Overcoming overwhelmed
Today, I learned that overcoming overwhelming feelings involves choosing three priority tasks each day. Typically, I find myself wanting to accomplish numerous things daily, leading to accomplishing nothing. This tendency often occurs during manic episodes with racing thoughts. I have not tried this tip before, but I am planning to incorporate it into my daily habits.
