This post is on what I have learned this last Saturday on the Earth Friendly Biz live training call. The subject of this training was about creating a checklist of things you have to do to keep your day organized and accomplish your goals.
Many people still didn’t develop the habit of writing their tasks and goals down on a piece of paper and what happens is that they usually don’t know what they have to do in a particular day or week and end up forgetting to do all those little but important things that will you lead them to success.
There’s nothing difficult in creating a checklist, on the contrary this will help you make your life easier. Below I list some steps you can take to create your to do list and organize your day:
1 – Chose a method that is best for you, it can be a simple notepad, a electronic gadget or a computer software.
2 – Take notes as you go along your day and write down your tasks as you remember them even if you have to do this the next day or next week, write it down immediately.
3 – Check your schedule everyday in the morning or the night before and prioritize what you have to do.
4 – Stick to the first thing on your list and don’t move on until it is done. In case you really need to put it off because you have something more important to do, that’s Ok, but get back to it immediately as soon as you can. Don’t postpone your tasks day after day, this will give you a feeling of not getting things done and not being accomplishing your goals.
5 – Striketrhough your tasks as you complete them. In the end of the day, if you have accomplished all of the things you had planned to do, this means you are achieving your goals and are in the right way to success.
6 – Once in while stop and review everything you are doing. Think about your long term goals and what you have to do now, then establish a plan of action and write down everything you need to do daily that will lead you to reach those goals.
These are just some simple steps you can use to organize your day and make your life easier. As I said you can choose the best method that works for you, it can be a notepad, a electronic agenda or a computer software.
