After running the “6 Things” method since 2013, I can say that the toughest part of it for me was getting “thing” sizes right. At first mine were way too large and I ended up getting just one or two done in a day. After a bit of practice I was able to break them down to get six meaningful things done in a day. I definitely experience all the benefits described in the article, plus one: I understood the scope and required effort of my work much more clearly when forcing myself to analyze it and break it down for placement into the daily list. I can see what things are actually a lot bigger than they seem and which ones are more trivial, in terms of effort.
