Making Checklists

Successful people are able to keep track of what they need to do and finish what they start. One of the best ways to improve your productivity is to use a checklist.

You might already use a to-do list for tasks or a shopping list when you buy groceries, but there are a lot of other ways you can use checklists.

You can create a packing checklist if you travel often. Although this list was created for a trip to France, it can give you some inspiration http://www.overbyte.com/free/trippack.htm

If you carry a diaper bag, you can create a list of everything that goes in it daily. Here’s a sample from Parents magazine http://www.parents.com/app/checklist/?checklistId=80001e

Remember when you change the oil in your car and do other preventive-maintenance tasks http://www.samarins.com/maintenance/remainder.html

You can always count on Martha Stewart to provide cleaning checklists for every situation http://www.marthastewart.com/photogallery/cleaning-checklists

Here is a list for appliance maintenance http://www.atlantaappliancerepair.com/Maintenance_Repair_Checklist.html

If you print your checklist, you can laminate it, so you can use a dry-erase marker to check items off and reuse the list. If you have a smart phone or PDA, you can retrieve lists easily wherever you go. You can even share your list with other people, using jibidee or mytodos
