Let’s get one thing straight—I love lists. I enjoy reading and making all sorts of lists—top 10 (or 100) lists of the best movies to watch, lists of ideas for organizing our home, lists of places that I want to travel, lists of music and moves I want to eventually check out, lists of books to read. . .and my favourite type of list: the To-Do List!
I take pleasure in crossing off things I’ve done, and feeling as though I’ve accomplished a lot.
Lists are a great way to keep thoughts organized, and they work well to brainstorm ideas.
To-do lists can get overwhelming, though—if they are too long, or vague.
Now that I’m finished university (!!) I am all about making lists! I have them in different categories:
-learning (things I want to try)
-things to check out (music, movies, books)
What categories do you use?
If you’re looking for some online to-do lists, check out this page which lists 25 to-do lists to stay productive. While I have used online lists like Don’t Forget the Milk, I’ve found that a scrap piece of paper works well for my needs. Of course, I don’t have a smart phone or an iPad, so I don’t need something digital at the moment. I definitely see how it could be useful to have one list synced to a device that you can take with you shopping etc.
