Benefits of a TO DO LIST

I love To Do lists and make them almost every day. I can definitely say that on the days when I am being most productive, I am following a To Do list. There are many benefits of To Do lists, from helping you prioritize your time to helping you remember what it is you meant to do! For me, to do lists are absolutely invaluable. It’s a very simple strategy that works great! 

 

What are the Benefits of a TO DO LIST?

Creates order
A to do list is an orderly way to organize how to do the things you want to do. Projects and plans get broken down into bite size chunks that are doable. A to do list not only creates order but also gives you a strategy for getting things done.

Prioritize
Manage tasks effectively. You can see all of the items at a glance and prioritize what most needs to be done according to timelines and importance.

Accountability
The act of writing it down in itself holds you accountable to get it done. Once you write it down, you have given it life and now are creating a plan to accomplish the goals you would like to see completed.  You are now accountable to you.

Rescheduling and organizing your time.
If you finish something quickly, a meeting gets cancelled or you otherwise find yourself with extra time, you can quickly see where the best way to spend your time is quickly to get back on track.

If something comes up unexpectedly and takes precedence in importance, when you are finished you can quickly see and continue with your previous plans.

Feeling Productive
It is a great feeling to cross items off your list. This gives you back control. It also gives you a positive productive feeling and this alone is worth keeping lists for.

Helps you to Delegate
To do lists help you to delegate work. If you see the list is too long, you can find others to help you get things done, whether it is asking family members for a hand or hiring a job out.

Relieves Stress
As you see work getting done and that you are moving forward efficiently, it allows you to relax more. Work is getting done and so you can take a well-deserved break. Schedule it in if you need to. I am quite good at just taking periodic breaks whether scheduled or not.
