I want to devote a post on to-do lists. Why? Because…
A. They are awesome.
B. They are fun to make.
C. They are life savers.
I’ve started making monthly to-do lists. Each bullet point has a task. Beside it, I write in an estimated date of when I hope to finish said task. Say for example:
- Finish writing portfolio (Sept 15)
That’s actually on my September to-do list. And I use the verb finish because I already started working on the portfolio. Go me.
This eliminates the need to create weekly ones simply because I add all the projects I want to finish by the end of the month on it, so another list would be redundant. Although some people swear by making a new list each week. Hey, whatever works for you.
I’ve yet to try out daily to-do’s because I’m not really that busy or productive, contrary to what my mind believes. If I did, I like the idea of adding a specific time (like 1:00 p.m.) beside the task to give myself a deadline within a deadline.
At the very least, I feel like I get more done. And who doesn’t like making lists?
