To Do List Part 1: Make a NEW To Do List

Posted on Apr 18 2010 - 9:32pm by Nadia Lawand

Ok its official, my To Do list is a To Do book!!! Between work, home, car, projects and my part-time work- the lists never end. I have little pieces of paper everywhere I look. I think I spend more time making lists than actually getting what is on the lists done!

My husband and I have been experimenting with different list writing techniques. When we do not have a good list, things can get ugly. Bad lists = bad fights with Jason and I.

We have recently learned that list writing is a technique that needs to be mastered. I am not quite there yet but join me on my quest to create the perfect lists.

The first thing I am going to do is split my pieces of paper up into the following lists:
1- Today
2- This Week
3- This Month
4- Next 3 Months
5- This Year
6- Eventually

I’m going to get started on my new TO DO list creation. Start yours too and let me know how it goes!

Next step is putting a due date on your tasks.

No Comments so far. Feel free to join this conversation.

    Oh if you find a way, let me know. I am better at work (it is organized). For food shopping, it is organized.
    For the rest, planning for the month, three months, year… or sometimes the week! (ie: tasks: grocery shopping, calls, email, holiday trips, gym, activity). I am getting better, my BB is helping, or i do it when i can.
    your personal goals where do they need to be fit in your calendar?

    if you find a way let me know, I am trying the challenge!
