List Making – do you do it?

keep calm and make a list

via

List making is potentially one of my favorite activities to do. It’s easy, it makes me feel accomplished, and I love crossing stuff off. I have lists everywhere. I have them in my wallet, on my phone, in my head, and in my notebooks. Some of us are naturally good at and well versed at making lists, but most people aren’t and don’t like them. However, lists are like mini super heroes, ready and willing to help you take on anything that comes your way, how can you not want one of those in your back pocket? Here are my tips on making great lists, even for the anti-list maker:

1. Find a fun place: buy a great new notebook or download a cool app to write your lists down in. Having something fun to look at greatly increases your chances of making good lists. My favorite phone apps are Evernote and Reminders from apple, while I love Kate Spade and Rifle Co notebooks.

2. Make it a habit: remember something you need to do? Write it down. This relies on you having your notebook or phone with you, but writing things down immediately helps retention and lowers stress.

3. Take action: write down items that you can take action on. Specifically, make sure not to write a giant task down like “run a marathon”, but instead break it down into bite sized chunks that are doable in the present like “buy running shoes”.

4. Cross them off!: my personal favorite, crossing things off clears any clutter from the long lists you have AND makes you feel amazing. If anything, do this for your sanity.

Tell me how your list making goes and check out this great additional article on lists how to make them useful.

    I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours these days,
    but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It’s beautiful price sufficient for me. In my view, if
    all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material
    as you did, the web can be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    Hello, I do think your site may be having web browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that, great site!
