At iDoneThis, we used to have a to-do task feature, and we discovered some interesting numbers demonstrating the common struggle to conquer our to-do lists:

41% of to­-do items were never completed.

50% of completed to-­do items are done within a day.

18% of completed to­-do items are done within an hour.

10% of com

15% of dones started as to-do items.

In other words: people aren’t that great at completing their to-do tasks; tasks that do get completed are done quickly; and tasks that are reported as done don’t correlate with planned to-do tasks.
