As much as I love technology and all that is available to do with technology, there are a few paper things I still enjoy.
I prefer actual books over my Kindle.
I prefer to write out my grocery list on paper over any app I have found.
And I prefer a 'to do' list on paper over my phone.
I know there are many systems and apps out there.
I have tried many systems and apps.
Here is the thing...whoever created any particular system or app, that system or app worked well for that person. Maybe the person shared that system or app and it worked well for a bunch of people. Doesn't necessarily mean the system or app will work for you or me.
Maybe you have tried countless systems or apps, and none of them work for you.
That is okay.
Because you have to find what works for you.
Just because 'something' works well for 'everyone', doesn't mean it is right for you.
So why am I sharing about my to do list?
Because it works for me.
And maybe it might work for you.
It is simply a junior legal pad and a pen.
This is not a daily to do list.
I started this list on Monday, and today is Friday.
I added things to the list each day this week.
Some of these things I finished earlier in the week.
Some of these things I finished yesterday.
As you can see, I still need to do a couple of things on this list.
I keep a running to do list because there are things I need to remember to do, and I won't remember to do them unless I write them down.
So now that this blog post is written, I need to write letters to my Compassion kids!
How do you keep track of your to do items through the week?
