Do you like making lists? I love them, and so I thought why not tell you all the reasons why I love them…in a list of course!
I start by scribbling down everything that I need to do and then I read back over and number each task in order of importance. By doing this I make sure that I get to the most important tasks first.
Clearing some brain space
If I have everything written down then I don’t need to remember it. This clears out my mind and makes me feel less stressed and overwhelmed.
The enjoyment of ticking off a completed task
I must confess that I am guilty of writing something on a list that I have already done just so I can immediately tick it off. It’s a compulsion, I can’t help it! Seriously though, it’s such a sense of satisfaction and achievement to be able to see progress.
The satisfaction of completion
It is so rewarding to go from looking at a list wondering how I’m going to get through it to staring smugly at each task ticked off.
A great visual aid for showing off
If I have had a busy and productive day then it is great to show a scrap of paper to my boyfriend with lots of things ticked off, just to hammer home the point of how productive I have been. Ok, so this one is a joke…kind of.
What are your thoughts on lists? Do you love them or hate them? Let me know in the comments!
