You can use checklists to manage exam preparation, reading lists, travel planning, project steps, personal tasks, professional goals, New Year’s resolutions, and more. Here’s examples of checklists to maximize your productivity.
With this checklist, you can write out your goals and dreams. Figure out where you are right now in terms of achieving those goals and what you need to do to get to them. One of your first steps toward your goals might be asking someone else what they think you need to do – there are a lot of experts on campus to talk to!
You may find it easier to compile several checklists (covering personal, study, and workplace, for example). Try different approaches and use the best for your own situation.
By keeping such a checklist, you make sure that your tasks are written down all in one place so you do not forget anything important. And by prioritizing tasks, you plan the order in which you’ll do them, so that you can tell what needs your immediate attention, and what you can leave until later.
