Recently, The Art of Manliness provided an historical look at checklists, along with a detailed primer in deciding which lists will work for you, culled from the excellent, The Checklist Manifesto. You can implement the same routine in your daily work to help give you a greater shot at success.
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.
A checklist template, often referred to as a ‘to-do list’, in order to manage tasks or items that need to be completed before a specific date or time. It is a helpful way to keep events and activities organized within a time-frame so that they are accomplished in a helpful way so that everything planned may be completed without forgetting an appointment, task, or chore. Create by filling-in online or handwriting after selecting one of the checklists to print.
But in you’re in an operational role, or if tasks are large or dependent on too many other people, then it may be better to focus on a longer-term checklist, and "chip away" at it day-by-day. Many people find it helpful to spend, say, 10 minutes at the end of the day, organizing tasks on their list for the next day.
