It’s National Simplify Your Life Week! Tip #1

To Do Lists to the rescue!

Simplifying your life–everyone says they’d like to do it, but where do you start? Here’s our first tip:
At Your Service suggests you start each day by creating a clear focus for yourself. How? With a “to-do” list! Whether it’s with pen and paper or on your favorite electronic device, a daily list will help you prioritize and serve as your roadmap to accomplishing everything you need to do. The chances of you forgetting to do something important will be greatly reduced with your handy-dandy daily list.

There are so many programs for your PC or Mac, apps for your IPad or Smartphone–to create and manage to-do lists that it’s actually kind of fun to manage your tasks. My personal favorite is Evernote. Evernote syncs to my IPad, phone and laptop, so no matter where I am I have my to-do list with me.

Evernote was inducted into the Apple “App Hall of Fame” and the New York Times says it’s one of the “Top 10 Must-Have Apps”. The basic version is free!

Of course, if you prefer, a sharp #2 pencil and a scrap of paper can keep you on task as well.

No matter the format you choose, the key is to use your to-do list each day to keep you on track. I start my list the night before and keep it going while I’m getting dressed for the day. When I’m ready to start my day, I know where I’m going and how I’m going to get there.

Check back tomorrow and all this week for more tips on how you can simplify your life!
