Yes, You’re right.
The name could be changed, but the core thoughts is the same.
“rule of 3”, “3 x 3 x 3” or “3 by 3 by 3” or "3 main points " are good name.
First we got 3 the biggest categories, and then divide it to more small .
3 main points
If we can’t get 3 points, usually we truely deeply don’t understand.
Such as Reading a book, take 3 main points = 3 the biggest categories = 3 macro catergories = 3 the topest catergories .
We often write many many points , break down / divide many many points in outliner app. That’s make chaos, not clearly , not simple, not easy to use them, not easy to remember them/memory them , not easy to speak them, waste a lot of time.
If we take “rule of 3” , easy to categorize, easy to use, easy to remember, easy to take note, easy to speak and clearly structure.
From big to small.
but we do it from small to big.
Big things from small beginnings.
Then same : Small things from Big bang.
3 the biggest categories.
All my todo, tasks, plans just have 3 the biggest categories.
In english name is Self-cultivation, Practice, Mind .
In Chinese name is 修身( self-cultivation), 修行， 修心。
Self-cultivation include 2 parts:
- It Include Health, body , Sports fitness. and Tai ji , Kongfu, Wushu Exercise for Life Enhancemnt ， meditation, Yoga ,etc.
If without good body / health, we can’t get good “Practice", and good Mind.
- 2nd part is about Moral of Chinese culture. Daxue 大學 (www.chinaknowledge.de)
Practice meaning is from Buddhism， but other religion can also use it , or change the other name , but the meaning is the same as Practice .
This Practice categories include all my work, job , business, life stuff .
talking, playing game, whatever where, who , time .
If they’re student, studying is their Practice .
All my work, job , business, life stuff are Practice .
The Practice of purpose is Mind（Heart）. In Chinese the name is 心。
Cultivate the heart 修心
This categories include our mind, our brain , our thinking method, philosophy,
about how to think with when Practice tasks.
How to think when we’re talking , etc.
about The Heart Sutra in English Heart Sutra - Wikipedia
Other religion have the same thing , just different name .
Well this (Cultivate the heart ) have a lot things, deeply philosophy, I can’t speak more clearly in forum.
The time is about The 24 Solar Terms
12 two-hour periods https://www.nirvananaturopathics.com/blog/traditional-chinese-organ-body-clock
The time segment is dynamic , not static.
2 weeks later, this task don’t need much more time , I’ll take 1 hour to do it. or completely done . Such as Yoga.
Why we need take more time at beginning ?
Bcz we don’t much know it. right ?
So I don’t much need daily template. Copy & paste and modify task is more easy built template. The template is static, not much intelligence.
Althoughthe idea is about chinese culture, we take the “rule of 3” .
This let you have to think the relationship of tasks for make tasks priority .
Example , If we learn some language , we’ll easy to learn mathematics,
If we learn some language, and mathematics, we’ll easy to learn other disciplinary，such as , physical chemistry. Right ?
Can we learn artificial intelligence without learned language and mathematics ?
Can we singing without learned language ?
The same , to think the relationship of many tasks.
In emotion or in logic , we think this task are more close to other task ( must task), we put this task to "need " categories.
Probably the name of " need" make confused.
The same, the relationship degree of " may task" are far away from “must task” . it’s a lab task. it’s for fun task, it’s experimental task, it’s side project. like those concept.
3 ≤ Daily Tasks ≤ 9
We don’t must to do 9 task in daily.
We don’t must to do " Need task" and “May task".
We don’t must to take plan " Need task" and “May task" before doing task.
Leave them blank ,it’s ok. Or add them during time. It’s ok.
We just do 3 task , 3 must task in the whole daily.
That’s enough , after done 3 must task , our mood will be good.
and them to make a decision for “Need task” or/and “May task” that is not late.
So, We just focus on making decision for only 3 must task in daily .
That’s “3 ≤ Daily Tasks ≤ 9 ” the meaning.
The 3 is what ?
It’s number ? yes, but also it’s the rule ?
yes , but the rule is what ?
the rule is order ? yes, but the order is what ?
The final answer is the 3 is degree, not just number.
like the Temperature degree, distance degree, strength degree, speed degree, mood degree, relationship degree , intimate degree, priority degree
Time number is also degree( the earth are moving around the sun makes light, dark, seasons, cold degree, warm degree ,etc ).
“The must, need, may task” categories are also task relationship degree, task priority degree in daily .
What’s the mean " main " ? It’s also about degree .
Heavy , lightweight . right ?
We use “degree” for make task categories , make task priority , make a task decision , structure task, structure plan.
Yeah. you also can change the name ,but the meaning is the same.
Degree also is frequency, rate of recurrence .
In different areas, have different name, but the meaning is the same.
like Music frequency：1234567 = C、D、E、F、G、A、B = Do ，Re， Mi ，Fa ，Sol ，La， Si .
All number is degree , aslo is the rule, is the order .
