The rule of three | Task Completion

I am an extremely organized person who is always doing something. My mind runs a million miles per minute and is normally organizing something, analyzing something else or breaking down basic foundations of something else for understanding. I am a task oriented person and my calendar is color coordinated and organized based on a multitude of factors. In other words, I have an overload of things to do at all times. If I want to, I can be on the go go go nonstop, or I can be the exact opposite and do completely nothing and just be relaxed and in comf-mode.

Most of the time, I keep a mental memory of the things that I need to do at all times which include things like phone calls to make or return, texts to get back to, when to eat during the day, reminders to take out my dog, bills to pay etc. On top of the mental memory and reminders, I also keep tasks on my google task app and events coordinated by calendar date and time. Living in the moment is sometimes a difficult thing to do when you always have to plan for the future. I do my best. In order to stop myself from doing too much and overloading myself, or doing too little, I give myself a rule of thumb of three things.

The rule is:
On your endless list of tasks, what are the most important things that need to be done?
Pick 3 and get those done no matter what.

Once you write out your list, or create your mental to do list, you can rest knowing you know all that needs to be done. Once you complete those three tasks, you can decide whether or not you feel good and have done enough, or if you now want to keep going. But no matter what, you will know that you would have gotten at least three things done that day. And that, my friends, is good enough.

What are some things that you do when you have a lot to do?
