To-do lists. They can be either than bane of your existence, or the best thing that ever happened to you.
Personally, I love to-do lists. I bought the prettiest to-do list paper block from Kikki K, for work of course. Now I wish I’d bought one for my personal life. It’d be perfect for my blog – I printed some to-do list papers off the internet, so those are ok for now.
Why are to-do lists so good?
To-do lists are perfect for putting your life into order and also to sort out what you need to focus on each week, month or year.
Now, the first thing that you MUST do is buy a to-do list.
I don’t know about you, but I find that I need to have things written down. I like having a paper copy – it makes it easier for me. Of course, you can make to do lists on the computer, if you so wish!
If you don’t have access to a Kikki K store, you can have a look on etsy.
I really love being able to jot ideas down and know that I can accomplish them – there is some form of satisfaction when you cross a to-do off the list.
Some other reasons why to-do lists make my life easier are:
All my ideas/things to do are in one place. I’d start writing things on scraps of paper or post-it notes and then would proceed to loose said pieces of paper. It was annoying knowing I had to do something, but couldn’t remember what it actually was.
To-do lists are so handy because they encourage you to actively accomplish things. They encourage you to get up and do things, because there’s nothing sadder than having these lists and nothing crossed off.
To-do lists a really the best thing that ever happened to me. I never could remember all the things I had to do for work, and now I just pull my to-do list out of my diary and start jotting.
I think that having a list like that orders your thinking and really helps with focussing on the most important jobs first.
I always find that it’s easier tackling the bigger jobs (the ones that require more effort at the start.
Then you can finish off the smaller tasks that don’t take so long!
Who else uses to-do lists?
The reason why I was inspired to write this post, is because this fab beauty at FashionxFairytale writes about her to-do list for each month.
