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 daily checklist template achieves three key goals; it allows you to record the date, write out your own tasks, and record your progress as you go. Many entries in this list return to the idea of simplicity, and this template is no exception – it’s simple enough to prevent any distraction, but customizable enough to provide almost infinite uses.
All of us think, plan and work differently. A program that works well for a colleague might not work well for you simply because you learn and think in your own way. This is why it’s useful to research and try several different ways of compiling your checklist before deciding on a single system.
Mark the importance of the task next to it, with a priority from A (very important) to F (unimportant). Redraft the list into this order of importance. Then carry out the jobs at the top of the list first. These are the most important, most beneficial tasks to complete. You can also use software-based approaches to manage your checklist. You can often access these from anywhere, and they can often be synced with your Smartphone or PDA.
