I’ve never liked the term “to do list.” A “to do list” connotes procrastination because it’s only a list of intentions.
To be effective build a results list at the beginning of each day and label it “results list!” This is a list of outcomes you will create with the investment of your time and energy.
Make the listed results absolutely specific. For example “call twenty clients” not “call clients”.
At the end of the day you’ll have measureable results for your effort. You will also feel a sense of self-management power because you were effective.
Power is the ability to produce effect. Power is the ability to get results. Make each day a powerful day with results lists.
