I am a list girl. I keep lists everywhere. On the back of receipts, on my iPhone and most recently Stickies on my Mac to help me remember tasks -even really minute things.
I keep them to clear out my head and get the details someplace more tangible.
I love lists because I can SEE what I need to get done and I can cross things off once complete. I even “mark” things off on my iPhone by placing a capital “X” next to it because I can’t physically scratch it off. I like to keep the lists. I’m am a record keeper. I never delete or very, very rarely, I should say.
I love a long running tab of what I’ve done for years. It warms my heart to reminisce and reminds me that I don’t, in fact, do nothing, which is often how I feel. I still find them from years ago and remember what I was up to back then.
Here are the links to a two great list templates that are helping me keep track of everything this Holiday Season.
P.S. (updated 12/4/12) The Moleskine Smart Notebook would be great for capturing your lists!
