I love To Do lists and make them almost every day. I can definitely say that on the days when I am being most productive, I am following a To Do list. There are many benefits of To Do lists, from helping you prioritize your time to helping you remember what it is you meant to do! For me, to do lists are absolutely invaluable. It’s a very simple strategy that works great!
Yes, I tend to make them the night before to save time in the morning. My partner always nags me that I should go to bed sooner but I can't sleep until I know what needs to get done the next day.
I keep a schedule which I guess is like a to-do list but more complex. I have one of those professional leather-back planners that I use for work. It is way easier than relying on my phone I find.
I like to keep a schedule, yes. I have a physical planner I use every day. A lot of people nag me to use the one on my phone but I would much rather write it down. It is easier for me to track things and I am more likely to remember everything on my list.
I use a planner on my phone and I use it daily. It keeps me organized and I am able to not only see what I need to get done for the day for work but for home too. When you have a wife and kids, you have to plan ahead!
