Making use of lists

We’ve always been told to write things down, instead of carrying them around in our head. This is because writing things down has a benefit beyond simply remembering them. Making lists organizes your thinking, which is extremely important for time management.

Writing things down that you need to accomplish in the form of a to-do list has a lot of benefits, including:

You can easily update your list and mark priority items in red. And, most importantly, you should have a particular place for keeping your to-do list.

No matter where you keep your list, get into the habit of looking at it often. Try reviewing it first thing in the morning and check progress at night.

You could also make good use of daily planners, calendars, personal digital assistants or your mobile phone.

At night, you should cross off the tasks you have accomplished and then re-write the
