With all we have to do in a day, it’s easy to forget what you DID do when you’re running to the next item on your list.
I saw this comment on a post from the excellent Captain Awkward blog:
“A good friend of mine makes to-done lists rather than to-do lists. She does things and then writes them down afterward. That way, she gets a running list of how awesomely productive she is (in whatever way she has been that week, which can vary from “Completed an eight-week training program in my chosen field, did a concert, and recorded four new songs,” to “Ate food, brushed teeth, and got to bed before dawn”), *and* looking at the things she’s already done helps jog her memory about what might be a good idea to do next.”
This sounds like a great idea. Let me know how it works for you!
