Getting Things Done: The Modern To Do List

to doEveryone has to do lists. The trick is getting stuff on that list done. I’ve found a way to motivate myself that works for me. I use a website called Remember the Milk which is an online site that allows you to create to do lists and manage them for free. I have created customized lists for my everyday chores.

I have three custom lists: cleaning, personal and work. I break down my cleaning chores into bite size actions so that I can feel achievement at each step of the cleaning process. I do the same with all of my lists. It gives me a sense of validation when I can check things off. That includes everything from exercise to studying the latest software.

It is so great to get through my lists that it makes it more enjoyable to do things like cleaning my house. I feel like I have really accomplished something as I tick off each step of the process.

So, even if you don’t use an online program to get things done, make your written list manageable and break things down into smaller steps, so you can realistically get things done. Don’t forget to reward yourself when you accomplish your goals!
