Over the course of my career, I’ve developed numerous strategies to help keep me afloat during the busiest seasons of work. One of the best ways to keep organized is to keep lists. While you may associate list making with grocery stores or christmas presents, the practice of writing to-do lists can be extremely beneficial. Here are three ways that I’ve found success with lists.
Focusing Your Goals – What better way to keep on track of your current responsibilities that to write them out.
How You’ve Succeeded – It’s important to take time to reflect on the ways you achieved in the six months or year. In order to learn from our mistakes, we first need to celebrate the ways we have achieved success.
Connections Lists – Make sure you’re keeping a list of people and professional connections that you’d like to meet. If you struggle with creating a network, a list can help nudge you to take that first step. Don’t undervalue the importance of a healthy network.
Personal List – Try and keep lists of your personal goals that you’d like to achieve, too. Strive for a healthy balance in life. If you’d like to start or explore a new hobby, skill, or course, lists can be beneficial and extremely motivating.
