Oftentimes in life, we have certain things that seem to be on repeat. What I mean by this is that we often have tasks that have to be done every single day. If you've got kids, then there are certain things you have to do daily like pack lunches for school and make sure they did their homework. Then there are other mundane tasks we have to do like the laundry and checking our P.O box. Through the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s easy to get carried away by all of the other tasks that can add up and overwhelm us and we easily forget about the bigger tasks that need to be done on a regular basis.
If you have tasks that need done on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, then these are things that you will want to keep written down so that you can constantly check in on them and ensure you are staying on track within your progress. For instance, if you have certain things that need done every single week, then I recommend keeping a weekly checklist. Not only should you keep this weekly checklist, but you should also set time aside each week to do the things on it and make sure that they get done. For instance, you can set aside 30 minutes every single Saturday to go over the checklist. This will help you to start off each week fresh with a new checklist and you will have a sense of accomplishment at the end of each week.
Using multiple checklists is a great way to ensure that you get those small mundane tasks done that are easily overlooked. I suggest having a weekly, a monthly, and a quarterly so you can get everything accomplished and stay on track. The small tasks like changing the filters in the vents of your house are really important, and if you have them written down then you will be sure not to forget them .
Like I said, using checklists is a great way to ensure that you don't miss the important tasks and everything gets done that needs to. It's a small shift that can create a large impact within your life and business.
