Do you have a memory like a sieve that leaks out useful information and tasks? If yes, you’ll know that it’s certainly not an asset, especially when you’re out of dry-cleaned clothes before a big meeting; or you get an earful for forgetting a relative’s birthday.
Making lists of all your important tasks and essential items required ensures a much happier and peaceful life. You won’t be harried or pressed for time during the week; weekends will become more relaxed as you won’t be completing the week’s leftover tasks.
A real time-saver
Lists are time-savers as they help you remember everything you need to do at a glance. Thus, you won’t waste precious moments wondering what you forgot. Once everything is down on the list, you know what you need to do and you can work at a faster rate.
For optimum efficiency, make your list with the top-priority tasks listed first. This way all your important work will be out of the way and you can breathe easily through the remainder items.
A money-saver too!
Most people suffer a major crisis when they visit the supermarket or mall. They just can’t decide what they want and thus waste time and money in futile shopping.
When you make a list of items required before a shopping trip, the task of buying becomes easier and inexpensive. You can move from section to section getting what you need and stick to the items on the list. It gives a feeling of immense satisfaction to cross off every item on the list at the end of the day.
To follow lists and become organized, you’ll need to actually make the lists. Remember that you need to carry your list around so it’s no use making sophisticated lists on computers.
It would be simpler to use notepads and pens – they are easier to carry around. You can buy attractive notepaper that will make you want to remove the list frequently to add or check items throughout the day.
So become a list maker and a perfect organizer!
