Checklists are a great way to manage all of life’s action items and to-dos. Whether you are dealing with personal pursuits or work objectives, it’s easy to look them up and check them off any time, on any device.
If you’re looking for some inspiration, here’s a handful of ideas that will get you started creating checklists to help manage your day to day.
Check for Success
Make one for work from your desk on a Monday morning and check it on your phone or tablet each evening from the home office.
Perfect for traveling or business trips. Use a checklist to make a packing list so you don’t forget any important items, big or small.
Goals inspire us to achieve life’s impossible dreams. Make a checklist to keep your New Year’s resolutions, savings goals, or training plans for that marathon or triathlon on track.
This is a list that’s built to last. Capture the titles you are dying to read, and keep track of the books you’ve read throughout the year. Further break the list into categories that include authors and genres.
Home Repairs List
Manage all of your projects along with the tools and materials you need to get them done.
Whether you shop every week, or every couple of days, an organized list is the perfect way to get in and out of the market quickly. For maximum efficiency, try dividing the list based on grocery aisle: cheese and dairy, fruits, veggies, and meats.
The 10 p.m. List
This is a great one. The concept behind this list, is that every evening at 10 p.m., you begin to outline the tasks for the next morning, from packing your gym bag, to checking your schedule for important meetings and deadlines.
Where to Eat List
Food lovers, unite! Keep track of the top restaurants you’ve visited in your city. Or, create a checklist for the places you hope to hit, including hot spots requiring reservations or off-the-beaten path local joints. Share with family or friends who want to follow in your foodie footsteps.
Dream Destination List
Where do you want to go next? Keep track of the top places you want to tick off your dream travel list. Share them with family and friends so they can add to the list, too. Break out the list by continent, country, or the style of trip.
