With this checklist, you can write out your goals and dreams. Figure out where you are right now in terms of achieving those goals and what you need to do to get to them. One of your first steps toward your goals might be asking someone else what they think you need to do – there are a lot of experts on campus to talk to!
The checklists are prioritized lists of all the tasks that you need to carry out. They list everything that you have to do, with the most important tasks at the top of the list, and the least important tasks at the bottom.
There are many time management software programs available. At a simple level, you can use MSWord or MSExcel to manage your lists. Some versions of Microsoft Outlook, and other email services such as Gmail, have task lists as standard features. Remember the Milk is another popular online task management tool that will sync with your smartphone, PDA, or email account. It can even show you where your tasks are on a map.
You can’t go wrong with simplicity, as demonstrated by this printable checklist. From Printable To Do List, this bland, yet effective to do list template comes as either a Word doc or PDF, and is fantastic for quickly putting your tasks to paper. It even has empty boxes to tick off your tasks as you go along – no messy strikethroughs here.
