Feel Accomplished with Accomp-Lists

I don't know about you, but I love making to do list. I make one every day and I get pleasure out of crossing things out. Sometimes I'll even write things down that weren't even on the list just so I can cross them out. I look at my to do list way too often.

Anyways, even though I hack away at my to do list every day, I still feel unaccomplished sometimes. As I started to contemplate why, I realized that I felt this way because I throw everything I accomplished that day in the garbage after creating my new list for the next day. As a result, I always have this feeling that there is more to do because my to do list always has empty check boxes every morning.

So in January, I decided to change the game and keep my daily to do lists instead of throw them away and below is my accomp-list for January 2008. Download my Personal Planning Chart to track your accomplishments.

  1. What a Great List!

    You've got some great ideas here--I like how you've broken them down--I might have to steal some of them.

    BTW--I really enjoyed the email subscription--thanks!

     
  2. Hey Keith,

    No problem. I'm glad that I could help. These are the core aspects of my life and I make sure to invest my time into them.

    Take care,
