Why I love a to-do list, there are so many reasons! Nothing makes me feel like I’ve achieved something quite like crossing it off my list.
Before bed I write my list. Some people organise their day in the morning but I feel the need to empty my mind in order to finish my day. I am definitely an overthinker. To get my thoughts down on paper means I can let go of them. I know they are recorded in a safe place to return to them later.
Using a very simplistic colour coding system in my bullet journal I write as many things down on the page as I can. Whether they are tasks I need to get done tomorrow, or ones that aren’t date specific, on the list they go. In the morning, whilst drinking my coffee in a rush, I look through the list again adding any last minute notes.
As I go through my day I check things off my list – each one a tiny success! Why does such a simple act make you feel to good?! It’s why I love a to-do list! I continue to make notes and add new tasks. By the time the day comes to an end I have plenty of inspiration for my brand new list!
I will be writing more on my blog about how I use my notebooks. There’s a lot more to them than just my to-do list! Follow my posts to see what I write in mine. Along with helpful tips and tricks on how to use your notebook to keep you organised!
