To-Do Lists can help you get, and stay, on top of important projects and piles of tasks or decisions. For instance, imagine you’re heading a team that’s working on a project. There are so many tasks to do, and so many people doing them, that staying on top of it all seems overwhelming.
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.)
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.
