To-Do Lists

Lists!  Why do we make them?  When should we make them?  Do they really help?  Do they hinder or help creativity?

To-do lists can provide motivation, a sense of accomplishment, organization, and probably even feelings of being overwhelmed if they are too long and unrealistic.

Crossing off to-dos on the to-do list is most satisfying - it's a sign that something is done, something is completed.  Adding something to the list frees the brain of having to remember it and then more of the brain can be used for creativity, imagination, and observation!

How do you keep track of your to-do's?  Paper, pencil, computer, cell phone, daily planner, post-its, or something else?  You  may also want to consider some of these To-Do Lists from fellow Etsians:

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm off to cross-off my daily blog post now from my to-do list!
