My 2020 Tasks, by the Numbers 

Thanks to Todoist’s annual reporting, I have found a lot of information about how I worked last year. In total, I completed 4,362 tasks in 2020, which breaks down to these averages:

  • 11 tasks per day
  • 82 tasks per week
  • 363 tasks per month

April was my most productive month, as you can see from these numbers showing how many tasks I completed by month. You can see that March wasn’t very good, and that I put my head down in April to work through the panic:

  • January: 388
  • February: 362
  • March: 192
  • April: 449
  • May: 398
  • June: 400
  • July: 376
  • August: 373
  • September: 400
  • October: 330
  • November: 336
  • December: 358

By far, I tend to do the most work on Tuesdays. I have no idea why, but here we are:

  • Sunday: 245
  • Monday: 553
  • Tuesday: 899
  • Wednesday: 629
  • Thursday: 565
  • Friday: 789
  • Saturday: 682

My most productive time is 5 PM, but I defer more tasks around 6:30 PM than any other time, especially on Fridays.

Go figure.
