Organizing Your To-Do List

to do list with nothing on it!

I’m a list person! My entire brain is on that little slip of paper listing all the things I need to do…at least, it used to be. After experiencing the panic of losing my list several times, I realized I needed a different method. Now I mostly use the Notes app on my iPhone because I almost always have my phone with me. For really urgent things, I still write myself a list and tape it up where I can see it.

To-Do Lists are essential if you’re going to beat work overload. When you don’t use To-Do Lists effectively, you’ll appear unfocused and unreliable to the people around you. When you do use them effectively, you’ll be much better organized, and you’ll be much more reliable. You’ll experience less stress, safe in the knowledge that you haven’t forgotten anything important. More than this, if you prioritize intelligently, you’ll focus your time and energy on high value activities, which will mean that you’re more productive, and more valuable to your team.

Do you struggle with making an effective to-do list? If so, read here for some practical step-by-step instructions and advice.
