  1. This is something i am really connecting to, because i also feel the same while i see my to-do list oh i am sorry (Can-do) list. That there so much that is left pending and the day is gone.

    But i totally agree with your advice that, it is okay not to complete all at once it is actually not possible. I will try the thought process you’ve suggested i think i will help a lot of people if they get it right and try to follow.

    Thank you for Creating Marvin and helping us via your blogs.
    Keep Writing 🙂

  2. Grüezi Christina!

    You make some good points here and the name “To-Do” list can definitely put some people off using one, which as you say, is not an option when it comes to good time management and productivity. (I think the word “budget” has exacty the same effect for many people when it comes to personal finance.)

    I like to view my To-Do list as a “List of Next Actions (to help me move a step closer to my goals)”, as described by David Allen in his book, Getting Things Done.

    The other thing that removes the “naggy” nature of the To-Do list is to prioritize it straight away, so that you quickly get down to what is important (and urgent) and what is not, which means you can usually delete or delegate a lot of stuff quite quickly. I use the Eisenhower Box, but as I know you know, there are various ways to do this!

    I have just discovered Amazing Marvin and I am still finding my way around, but I have to say, I am very impressed so far. Keep up the great work!

    • Thank you for your comment and support! 🙂 And I like how you look at your tasks, especially within the context of your goals. Once you get the hang of Marvin you will be pleased to see that you can implement very nice Eisenhower systems and GTD workflows.
