Even if your memory is so good that you can remember what the weather was like on January 5th, 2009 (rainy, if you didn’t know – but we googled it), there are times when we forget to take the laundry out of the washer or send that all-important email that we promised to hours ago.
Keeping track of crucial elements in your life allows you to visually understand where you are and where you want to be. This can be in the short term (you want to wash your laundry), and long term (you want to pay off your car loan within the next year).
Here are 3 lists to keep if you want to be successful, track achievements, and nurture ambition!
- Lists of Goals
Goals and ambition are what drive us. We often need to ask ourselves what we want to in order to feel truly accomplished. Your list of goals can be about financial stability, a place that you can call your own, starting a family, or being independent. Without such a list, it’s easy to lose sight of where you’re heading.
- Lists of Tasks
Tasks are the milestones to goal completions, so these lists have a tendency to be long. Making a To-Do list for your day, week, month, year, and life allows you to visually see where you want to be and how to get there. These lists and sticky note reminders are excellent tools for increased productivity.
- Lists of Finances
This mundane piece of advice is often neglected. After all, who wants to dwell on their finances (or lack thereof)? There are two types of expenses: necessities (bills, taxes, food), and those indulgences for personal expenses. By making a list of the monthly expenses we’re obligated to pay, we’ll have a clear overview of how much resources are there at our disposal.
While you may be thinking that you’re the ‘list’ type of person, give it try today! Whether you prefer digital notes or handwritten reminders, putting your goals down in writing is a great way to be successful in whatever you do.
