I know that much of my to do list will look the same each day, and that's great. Instead of writing repeats down each day, I made up some notepads with those important tasks on them. I'll pull off one a day and use it as my to do. There's plenty of room to add other items or to make a grocery list on the back.
I'll be thrilled if I get to 80% of these things on any given day. And if I get to ALL of them one day, I'll go to bed completely content! As well as a list, it's a reminder of what's important to me in the Spring of 2010. I have enough to get me through the school year, then I'll make up a Summer 2010 pad with a variation of this same list.
I made my list in Word and printed it off. I took it to Office Max and they turned my paper into quarter-page notepads and gummed the top. I understand I could just print this list off each day and I may do that at some point. But I liked the little notepad approach and it wasn't expensive. If I had gone black and white, it would have been even cheaper.
Let's see if these pads help me keep my priorities straight and lend me a sense of accomplishment in my new role.
