Some peoples' memories are so good that they can remember what the weather was like on December 16th, 2007 - rainy, if you didn’t know, but we googled it! For the rest of us mere mortals, there are times when we forget to take the potatoes out of the oven or reply to that important email that we promised to hours ago.
Keeping track of crucial elements in your life allows you to understand visually where you are and where you want to be. This can be in the short term (baking potatoes), and long term (paying off a car loan by the end of the year).
Here are three lists that warrant implementation to track achievements and nurture ambition!
Goals and ambition are what drives us. We often need to ask ourselves what we want in order to feel truly accomplished. Your list of goals can be about financial stability, a place that you can call your own, starting a family, or to propel your business. Without such a list, it’s easy to lose sight of where you’re heading.
Tasks are the milestone to goal completions, and these lists have a tendency to be long. Making a To-Do list for your day, week, month, year, and life allows you to see visually where you want to be and how to get there. These lists and sticky note reminders are excellent tools for increased productivity.
This tip derives from the Twitter co-founder and Square CEO, Jack Dorsey. He ran both companies at the same time (talk about burning the candles at both ends!), and his secret to staying productive was pretty simple: give each day of the week a ‘theme’ then structure your daily To-Do lists around that. For example, organize meetings on Mondays, do admin work on Fridays, finances on Thursdays… It’ll make the week go by quicker, too!
While you may be thinking that you’re the ‘list’ type of person, give it try today! Whether you prefer digital notes or handwritten reminders, putting your goals down in writing is a great way to be successful in whatever you do.
