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.
Sometimes it is easier to write your task down than just remember it. This to do list form will help you manage your daily tasks. You won’t miss any important tasks that need to be accomplished.
When you do use checklist effectively, you’ll be much better organized, and you’ll be much more reliable. You’ll experience less stress, safe in the knowledge that you haven’t forgotten anything important. More than this, if you prioritize intelligently, you’ll focus your time and energy on high value activities, which will mean that you’re more productive, and more valuable to your team.
To-Do Lists are particularly useful when you have a small number of tasks that you need to complete. However, they can become cumbersome when you have too many items on them, or when you need to progress multiple projects. At this stage, it’s worth starting to use Action Programs, which are designed to manage more complex situations reliably.
