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.
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.
Or, imagine you’re in a sales role and have a long list of people who you need to talk to. You write out a checklist of everyone you need to call and every client you need to see, and start prioritizing.
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.
