Power of the To Do List

Home / Blog / Power of the To Do List

Now everyone has their own style of getting things done.  What I’ve discovered about myself is that I need to make a list.  It’s one of the things I’ve heard over and over again in the personal development audio programs I listen to.  The funny thing is that now I’ve really started doing it, I notice just how much more I get done.  I literally knocked off 12 things on my list today.  Many of them, I would’ve put off (for who knows how long).  The simple task of adding an item to the list means I get it done.  I see that outstanding item, and it bothers me till it’s done.  Now don’t get me wrong, some of the items just get postponed till tomorrow, but it forces me to look at it daily.

Now I use a tool called Remember The Milk.  I love it.  it works great on the iphone, and it serves as a constant reminder of what I need to be working on.  I encourage you to give it a try.  It doesn’t matter how you do it, a notebook, a smart phone app, or a deck of index cards.  The trick is, don’t do anything that takes more than 10 mins unless it’s on the list.  It forces you  prioritize what you need to do.  Anyway, I’m going to keep this one short because you get the point.  Make a list, and watch your productivity increase.

good luck.
