To be successful, it starts small. Highlighting the importance of creating to-do list and keeping a calendar. For the procrastinators, including myself, sounds easier said than done. Although starting to create a to-do list and writing in a calendar every day can be difficult to remember but slowly becomes a good habit. It’ll be extremely beneficial to you while pursuing your goals.
Having a calendar and writing in it every day keeps you organized, and encourages responsibility. Writing things down rather than using electronics helps information stay longer in the brain. Creating a to-do list every day is like writing down a list of small daily goals, it helps with time management and organizing activities.
In the article called “The Psychology of The To-Do list - Why Your Brain Loves Ordered Tasks” Louise Chunn says that there are three reasons to why creating a to-do list is beneficial; “they dampen anxiety about the chaos of life; they give us a structure, a plan that we can stick to; and they are proof of what we have achieved that day, week or month.” This also applies to calendars, it’s a good habit to start. The list and organizing a calendar creates a guide for long term goals and success.
