Our minds are moving fast and many of us are so busy jumping forward that we forget what we have done. So if we want to remember something, we have to write it down as a
To-do lists have a long history and have always been the subject of advice on joy and productivity. One of the earliest-known forms of a to-do list was recorded in 1791 from Benjamin Franklin. His intention was to make sure, he contributed something positive each day, and he started his list with the question “What good shall I do this day?”
But why going with paper?
Handwritten lists are incredibly rewarding. With digital to-do lists you – just list. With paper, you can actually think through the things you are supposed to do, arrange, schedule and register the level of priority and importance of each task and you physically tick your checklist or cross out a task – that gives you a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
With a handwritten to-do list you stay focused. No apps on your mobile device can catch your attention to the social media world while you are working on or in between tasks.
Simple & powerful
Writing down makes your life simpler and has something that makes you “more committed” when it comes to getting things done. If you write something down on a to-do, you’re less likely to forget about it since you’ll have it in front of you and the act of adding it cements it in your memory.
Get inspired with a Love-To-Do list
Of course, it’s not always realistic to have only items on your to-do list that excite you but while you can’t get rid of tedious tasks, you can structure your day so, that it contains more tasks that you love to do. It’s really a good strategy to consciously and regularly do more of the enjoyable things and will bring you more energy and inspiration.
