Weekly Did List explained: So you probably make a To Do List each week... and it can be overwhelming to look at it, but do you make a DID list?
My “Did List” is the best thing I think I’ve ever done to help me feel accomplished. It only takes a total of a few minutes each day to do and yet makes me feel 100% better about my day. Even though I feel like I work constantly, it often feels like I didn't get anything done each day.
If you ever feel like you worked so hard and yet got nothing done all day, you are going to love this trick!
Basically, as you go along each day, you write down each productive thing you did. It takes a few seconds at a time that only equals a few minutes total each day but makes you feel so much better about yourself. You’ll be shocked how many things you actually did! Or it’ll motivate you to do a couple tasks here and there to make your list look longer :)
I simply put a little dot and write each thing I did:
* Made homework copies
* Did 2 loads of laundry (yes, I give myself credit for household things, errands, and chores too!)
and it fills up fast to show you how much you actually do in a day! :)
If you’re a list maker, you will love doing this. It motivates me every day. I am obsessed with it. It’s so easy to stare at your to do list every day and think, “Oh I’m going to get this and this done tomorrow” only to be disappointed when you feel like you were running around everywhere and didn’t cross anything off. This will help show you that, no matter how long your to do list looks, you actually do get SO much done each day.
