Cool and Convenient Lists to Have
Something came across my screen, and really struck me as interesting and worth writing about. The David Allen Company has a posting about lists that a person should keep. I currently keep lists on what I want to have and want to do, but I should make some other lists to organize my life and goals better.
Some of my favourites from the article:
Affirmations – personal self-talk scripts for positive internal programming
Birthdays – (if you don’t put them on your digital calendar system), group by date, as reviewable (those during a month, put in tickler for that month, etc.)
Might wanna buy… – could be one mega-list, or (more commonly) grouped by the type of thing it is: cds, cigars, wines, books, videos
Restaurants – for business or pleasure, to review for ideas instead of same-old same-old.
Tips/Shortcuts – speed-key codes, shortcut codes for new systems (voicemail, answering machine, pager, software apps, new Palm III, etc.) Any new skill set you’re learning can have a remind-me-about list specific to its features and activities until they are habitual and under your belt.
What things do you make lists of? Have you posted a list of accomplishments or things you want to accomplish?
