I am a huge fan of keeping an up-to-date to do list at all times. But instead of trashing your list at the end of each day-keep it. If you’ve had a productive day and crossed a lot or even everything off your list, keep it and first thing the next day remind yourself of how much you got done. You see, when we throw the list out, we go on to the next tasks without realizing how much we have already accomplished. It seems like we never take a chunk out of our workload.
