To use your checklist, simply work your way through it in order, dealing with the A priority tasks first, then the Bs, then the Cs, and so on. As you complete tasks, tick them off or strike them through.
Run through these checklists allocating priorities from A (very important, or very urgent) to F (unimportant, or not at all urgent). If too many tasks have a high priority, run through the list again and demote the less important ones. Once you have done this, rewrite the list in priority order.
Write down all of the tasks that you need to complete on the checklist. If they’re large tasks, break out the first action step, and write this down with the larger task. (Ideally, tasks or action steps should take no longer than 1-2 hours to complete.)
If you’re after a particular kind of to do list then feel free to search the heading you’re after and skip ahead, but otherwise strap yourself in and feel free to grab one or more of the following templates to organize your important tasks. All of these checklist samples are freely available – just open them and then make a copy to have your very own template.
