Tip One: What To Use To Create Your To-Do List
To-Do Lists are handy tools in accomplishing goals. They give you an overview of what needs to be done daily/weekly/monthly and helps you assess just how much you’ve accomplished. Having this handy tool is great! But, what’s the use of having this tool, when you don’t have the proper mode to effectively create them to accomplish your goals. What makes the tool effective? For starters, you MUST use a medium that you will use and check daily to do the list and complete the tasks. You have to make them work for you. You can be formal or extremely creative in doing them. Whatever you choose, make it “you”. There are several tools to comprise to-do lists and here are a few of the advantage to using them:
Journals – journals are small books with blank pages. These are great if you are disciplined at creating To-Do lists. They allow the independence to create it to your own specifications. Also, they are a blank canvas for your creative mastermind to make your to-do list fun and eye catching for you. Journals are great; however, if you’re not as disciplined, or if you are new to creating a to-do list for yourself, then this is not a good option for you.
Planner – daily planners outline the days/weeks/months and have allotted spaces to write down your to-do’s. Planners are wonderful, and are great for goal setting. They create organization and allow an overall view of your week/month for reviewing goals. Although they are great tools, sometimes the limited space limits the amount you can write down for to-do lists. For the creative, extremely detailed note taker, this may not be a good option; but for the beginner, or person who just likes jotting down their to-do’s, this is great!
Notepads – we all know what notepads are, right ?!?! Notepads allow us a page to write all over the place! You can jot down what you need or you can be as detailed as you want. The only drawback to notepads is there is no privacy. Planners and journals have covers, preventing the outside world from peeping in at a glance on what you are up to. If you are the super private person (like me) who does not like your destiny deets exposed to the surrounding world, this is not a good option for you!
Mobile devices – your tablet, phone or electronic planner can be used to devise your to-do lists. There are apps you can download and there are items that are installed in your phone that you can use to make your lists. Your mobile device is an efficient way to create your list and keep up with your goals. You carry it around with you anyway, so why not make use of it for other purposes besides social media?!?!? (Lol) Mobile devices are extremely efficient at making and completing to-do lists, but they can limit your creativity a bit. If you are the creative person that likes to add things to spruce up your list, then this is not a good option.
These are just a few tools you can use to get started or to better enhance your daily-to-do lists. Choose something that you know you will utilize most effectively and efficiently to create your goals. No matter what you use, the objective is to get you on the road to accomplishing your overall vision and goals.
