Like time and mental energy, the Burner List is limited, and so it forces you to say no when you need to and stay focused on your number one priority.

Burner list is a method mentioned in Make Time by **Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky.

In a Burner List, there are two column, one for the main task, and the other for misc tasks. On each burner list, there is ONLY one main task, and might be multiple misc tasks. In this way, we can focus on the main task, and won't be distracted by misc tasks.

Clicking the below 'Add a Nested Task' can quickly add tasks.
