Do you have a ‘to do list’ or checklist? The Art of Successfully Writing a To Do List is not difficult.
Have you ever said you’d do something, then forgot to write it down? Then someone mentions that they did it or went to the event and you got upset….at yourself because you didn’t write it down. Maybe you wrote it down, then lost the list, or it is buried deep in your purse or backpack. So can you relate?
Remember by writing things down.
This is a simple reminder, write it down. Somewhere. It is a way to help yourself. Start with big stuff, monthly, weekly, and then your daily schedule. “The Art of Successfully Writing a To Do List” starts with the very important things you need to do, accomplish and remember.
Simple thought. A Recipe card can be artfully written. It comes from family members writing down a family recipe. Can you imagine grandma’s homemade rolls that are the recipe of the century? What if it never got written down, and eventually forgotten?
Write down important things you need to focus on. You can organize them later into sections, once they are written down. Perhaps you could even create your own notebook of important events, ideas, phrases, recipes, memorable names, dates, locations and more.
And a notebook or planner with sections is a great way to organize or have some order to the important things you do each day. There is something significant about writing things down because it helps you and others to remember. That is the key. Remember –
As a young woman I would forget things like forgetting meetings at work. As the day would start, and circumstances would come my way I would rush off to get paper for the printer, answer a phone call at work, talk to a co worker, and all the sudden I would see people going into a conference area and remember there was a meeting. I needed assistance remembering.
There was a wonderful woman next to me that pulled out her monthly planner. It was small and plain, but it had sections. In this section she had written down her schedule for the month, her plans, her appointments, phone numbers, contacts, etc. All the things.
So began my focus on planning. I was 20 at the time and a disorganized mess. That day changed many things for me. I fell in love with planning and planners. It led to personal success having a place to write down my schedule. It led to success in the little things and success in my schedule, my days, my work, my personal life.
Be mindful of your heart and soul
Even God helps us when He says “Take heed or be mindful of your heart and soul, your inner emotions by remembering what I’ve done for you. Don’t forget. Remember what you’ve seen. Then tell them to others, to the next generation. Don’t ever forget.” Deuteronomy 4:9
As a believer it is even more important to me to be mindful of what God has done for me. Writing it down. Remembering.
“Take heed or be mindful of your heart and soul, your inner emotions by remembering what I’ve done for you. Don’t forget.” Deuteronomy 4:9Living Bible
We write it down so we don’t forget.
Book of Remembrance is a great tool for remembering. Scriptures on remembering and a place to write it all down.
BE mindful of what you write. Not just a to do list. There are more important things….your reason for existing. Your purpose, your call and your destiny. It all matters because you matter. Any notebook will work.
