In your planner, assign contexts to tasks in two ways:

  • “Must Do” tasks on a hard date. Daily task areas have limited space, so you need to abbreviate the context. Write it to the left of the task name: (W), (F), E for: (Work), (Family), Errands.
  • “May Do” (no hard date) and Someday/Maybe tasks. Write the task behind the correct tab in the back. Write any other contexts to the left of the task.

Remember: you can write tasks in multiple locations. Duplicates are not a problem, since you will cross off completed items as you see them.
