Some may know I have been reading Dave Ramsey’s Entreleadership, I am currently on the Steak Sauce chapter. In this chapter he discusses todo list’s and scheduling, I admit a todo list is something I have not done diligently. Reading the book inspired me to give keeping a todo list another try. Doing this meant I needed an easy method to update and track my todo’s.
My first thought was the old fashioned paper, while I have to say this will work, it seemed a bit archaic. I mean after all we have smartphones, laptops, and tablets, all of which have the capability of tracking information, why should I choose paper? For my first go this week Google Docs seemed to make the most sense. In my effort to not repeat work someone else had already done, I stumbled across this template. I promptly imported the template to Google Docs and voila, instant todo list! Take a look here.
I am hoping, this quote holds true and all this effort is not wasted: “If you spend fifteen minutes planning your day on paper every morning, you will add 20 percent to your productivity.”
