What is it?
As it says, a to-do list. A list on which you write all your things to do.
- Feed Robbert the Rabbit
- Make homework
- Practise origami
- Answer email
And go on and on.
Why is the to-do list so great?
- It’s a list on which you can write and see what you need to do. This means, it doesn’t have to be in your head anymore!
- It’s small sized, so you can always carry it with you, where ever you are, you can see ‘what to do.’
- You don’t have to encounter with any time limit, as with a daily schedule. You can take as long as you want on something.
- You can scratch things of your list. Yeah, I wrote a blog post, SCRATCH! With that move, in your brain neurotransmitters are coming free and give you a great satisfied feeling. Try it, write ‘Do 5 sit-ups’ and do them and then scratch what you wrote, amazing right?
How do I use it?
I only write 3 things down every day. I’ll call them ‘Most Important Things’ MIT’s. The idea is from Leo from ZenHabits.net, who calls it Most Important Task. Just three things I urge to get done that day. I put that list in my pocket, next to my phone, so everytime I grab my phone, I feel the list and feel the need to get things done. And it works! 5 of the 6 days it works, serious.
Just some nice extra’s.
- Use a @place. ‘Make homework @desk’ or ‘phone dad @phone.’ ‘Tie shoe laces @anywhere’ You can see at once where you need to do things.
- Use colors. More important things in a red color, so you can see what you need to get done first.
