So, lately other brides I follow have been posting their to-do lists. I have my all written on paper:
I thought to myself... I'm such an organized person... I should have a digital file with all my lists on them! I attempted this tonight.
I got the major DIY projects listed on an excel file and got extremely tired just THINKING about all I have to do. (This is not ALL my projects either.) HAHA...
So- now I have just a page of my DIY projects, but I think I want to make a Word file with more of a list of steps involved in each project...
Here is my insight on my typical daily to-do lists that I enjoy making:
1-I like to start the list off with something I've already completed. (So, I get to start my list by crossing something off!)- It makes me feel accomplished.
2-I like to add on simple tasks that I know I'm going to complete even if it's a daily task... like "eat breakfast". Done.
3-I like to break things down to multiple items... so when 1 task is done I can cross off 4 things---
i.e. Run Errands would look more like
- Get book from Library
- Get supplies for dinner
- Stamps from Post Office
- Get gas in car
(So, as soon as I get home- BOOM!- 4 things scratched off)
The point of this being: my DIY tasks are BIG things- like "Invitations"... so the next to-do list I'll make will say:
- Design Invitations
- Order Paper
- Order Envelopes
- Print out Invites
- Plan Assembling Partay with MoH and BM!!!!
(So I can check things off as I go and feel better about the progress I'm making!)
Anyone else feel defeated just looking at their to-do list? I have 96 days to complete EVERYTHING!!!!!!
