Secrets of Success

Convenient Weekly To Do List



Each week, I fold a 4x6 index card in fourths. This gives 8 columns (counting front and back sides) of 1.5"x4" each. At the top of each column, I put the day of the week and date. I use the 8th one for a shopping list. I put my "to do" list on the top third, my "to e-mail" list mid third, and appointments at the bottom of each day's column. It can be folded so the current day is showing, and it's easy to turn and add reminders during the week. I keep it in my pocket or purse, so it's always

More Information:

handy for jotting notes as things come up, or writing down contact information! I use a compact, fine point pen that I keep with the list. At the end of the week, I transfer anything that didn't get done to the next week's list, and file the old one for a reference. Beats lugging an agenda!

    I'm going to try this as a way to track my food - thanks for the suggestion! - by CORGIDOGMOM
  • I really like this one. I use 5X7 cards in my coupon filing box, which is also 5X7, and I used to use them for groc lists but now I use the electronic online groc list function. So I have these extra cards bought, and my size will give me even a little bit more room. I do my weekly planning in Franklin Covey planner ea Sunday. But I can make the fold-up card with the bottomline results from the planner, and use it as my daily quick review cheat sheat. I think I'll divide my thirds as you described them (top, middle, bottom) into daily to do, daily goals work, and daily errands.

    Thanks alot! - by CAROLFAITHWALKR
