To Do’s, Tasks and Projects

How do you compartmentalise the above items?  I’m a list maker (whether it is via electronic means or paper or both).  For me; 

Tasks are those daily items that ensure everyday life ticks along without issue.  Based loosely on Fly Lady tasks and personal tasks. 

To Do’s are a list of items I’d like to do within the next few days (ie have a short term completion date). 

Projects are longer term (possibly requiring multiple steps or stages)

How do I deal with these lists:-
Tasks are mentally stored (on a good day LOL!), are also recurring reminders on my IPhone and written within my Filofax.  Yes there is duplication sometimes but I’d rather have two copies than no copies.  Tasks are printed onto A6 or Filofax Pocket size sheets of paper and laminated.

To do’s are dealt with as Tasks.  In my Filofax they are written on the dashboard to the side of the Week on 2 pages view.  I just draw a line through any completed tasks and when I find the page is scrappy, I re-write. 

Projects are kept solely on my IPhone within the Trello app. 

How do you categorise your To Do’s, Tasks and Projects and where do you store them? 

As always, thanks for reading and if you have any questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you below.
