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.
You can download an event planning checklist template to help you map the steps for your next event. You can even create checklists for each task you’ve broken down. If you’re planning a large gathering, a checklist can help prevent you from becoming overwhelmed. Make sure you download your templates on this page!
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!
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.)
