If you're like me and don't have a set schedule of where to go on a daily basis, i.e. a 9 - 5 office job, then making lists will keep you organized and up to date with all things important.
It's easy to just let the day go by meandering through your daily chores, trying to remember all the little things you have to do (empty the dryer, get to the bank, see client at 3:00...), but if you never acknowledge these little things, they don't seem to mean anything and at the end of the day you may not feel like you accomplished very much.
I like to start with the simple things and to include it all. That way if I do something small like - water the plants - I get to cross something off the list. This small task suddenly feels like I did something that got me through another piece of my day. I just love the feeling! And of course it really helps me stay on top of everything I need to because if it's on the list, well, I just have to do it, don't I?
I like to do my lists on paper and to use a pen to actually cross things off, but lists on computers and smart phones are pretty great too if that's your thing.
