The Daily Plan: The To-Do List

Planning your day takes very little time and can really pay off.

You begin by listing all the things you need to do for the day.

Then you decide which are most important to your daily goals.

Keep your list with you to stay on track.

To make your "to-do" list:

  1. Use a 3x5 card or small notebook.
  2. List your activities/tasks for the day.
  3. Prioritize your list:
    - Write an A by your must do's - the tasks that will help you meet your stated goals.
    - Write a B by your should do's - the jobs that are important but could wait a day.
    - Write a C by your could do's - easy or fun things that really can wait.
  4. Do the A's first.

For example:

psych SI session A3
review MATH A1
call home/get new room key B1
ENG paper (1st draft) A2
play cards C
