Time Saving Tip: Use a checklist for recurring projects you do infrequently.
Today I’m getting ready to go on a trip, which, as you can imagine, involves packing and getting things wrapped up at home and work so I can be away for five days. Packing and getting ready for a trip is a recurring project that I do infrequently. Because of this, I rely heavily on my travel checklist. The great thing about a travel checklist is that it saves time and stress…which is why even though I have mentioned my travel checklist a time or two before, I wanted to share it as one of my favorite time savers.
I love creating and using checklists, especially for projects that I do infrequently. Checklists help you avoid the learning curve for anything that you do once a month or once a year, or on any irregular schedule. I have checklists for spring cleaning, back to school, weekly house cleaning, as well as for various things I do at work (like paying taxes online…which thankfully, isn’t a daily project.)
Take action! Think about a recurring project you do infrequently that involves a learning curve each time you do it. Then, next time you do this project, create a little checklist you can use from then on. Your checklist doesn’t have to be fancy to be functional. I have many checklists jotted down on a piece of notebook paper and they work just fine. Then, find a convenient home for your checklists (such as a household reference binder) so you always know where to find them.
