Whether your method is mind-mapping, time-blocking or bullet journaling, your task management has to fit for your needs. If you haven't found the method that strongly fits your personality quite yet, don't sweat. It takes time to find the right one. Try several and give it some time for those new habits to set in before hopping to the next and ruling out a potential good thing.

Happy coding!
