I love a to do list. I find it very satisfying as I work my way through. I love an opportunity to use stationery and I know I always get more done when I do them!
I have a daily to do list and then I have the big one, all the stuff that needs to be done, ideas, jobs to do etc. Some things are on the everyday list and then I can add other tasks from the bigger picture list.
I like to schedule blocks of time in my diary for completing different tasks. Including work, training, house stuff, down time. I will always have busier and quieter days to strike the balance. Sometimes you get stuff done because you want to and are in a good routine rather than having to force every task.
Interestingly, I often find myself falling into a groove, a routine, but I still make a note of it in my diary and I plan items in my scheduler because it is good to hold yourself accountable and get the small reward of ticking off an item. Because its easy to stop counting the small daily habits as things and forget how much you have accomplished!
I am ready for a busy day working through this list as it always feels great to start the week as you mean to go on!
Some Top Reasons Why Do A To Do List:
To Do lists are not for everyone and its important to make them work for you! It's all very well making to do lists but if you don't execute them then is it worth spending time writing them? For some, simply listing the jobs for the day may work perfectly. For others it may be more effective to schedule time for specific jobs. I quite like general to do lists for different areas and then I will plan out my day by prioritising and allocating time slots for all the things of the day, including time for doing a little bit of something I find relaxing!
I'd love to hear from you and how you feel about To Do lists...
I hope you have a great day and work through your to do list, or perhaps start one! 📃💖
