Introduction: I always thought that to do lists were only for the organized people.
The truth is that we all have a to do list. Some people keep them on their fridge with a magnet, some write it on their hand, and some keep it in their head.
The point is that we all have a list of things to do. The difference between those who are organized and those who are not is the ability to make the list and follow through with it.
I thought that it was something that people who were really busy could do. Little did I know that you could use it for anything. Whether you're the most busy person in the world, or you just need a little motivation to keep you accountable, the to do list is the perfect tool.
For me, I set a list of little things to get done, and when I finish them all, I'm free to do other things.
In the past that means that I have a list of things that I have to do, and that list just used to get longer until I just well had random sticky notes and papers everywhere.
I used to have a book I carried everywhere too but slowly even that book got full and I got overwhelmed.
Then, I got super busy with work and kids, school and a husband, traveling and it was just confusing.
Enter to do lists! I started using the Wunderlist app on my phone, but I would always forget to look at it...so I decided to make a simple phone app with a daily checklist for me to keep me on track but also connected it to calendars. You can check that out here:
