As a change from the Autofocus-type systems, the Predictive To Do List consists of writing down a list of all the tasks which you actually think you will do today. Instead of ticking items off the list as you do them, the idea is to do one’s work without looking at the list more than a couple of times during the day.
This is a much easier way of working than ticking tasks off a list, and usually the complete list can be finished during the day.
There is a strong tendency to write down a long list of things which you want to do (or feel you ought to do). This turns this into yet another to do list and the ease of working is lost.
It can be very effective, provided that the list continues to be of the things you actually think you will do today. If that is lost sight of, then the method will fail.
