Benefits of habit “Write a “Done list””

✓ Helps stay motivated
✓ Reduces the feeling of being overwhelmed
✓ Boosts your mood
✓ Maintains the feeling of achievement

First step:

1 done item per day


1. Today, write down 1 task or chore or anything else that you are done with. Do this every day for a week.
2. Next week, write down 2 items per day.
3. Keep increasing, until each day you make up a list of all things you have completed that day.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Trigger your mind. Have the notebook you’re using for this list somewhere always visible. That way, you won’t forget it to use it.
✓ Let the app help. Use the reminder function to ring you when it’s time to list out done items. You can also track the days you missed on the calendar.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve gone a month of putting together “Done with” lists every day, reward yourself.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Be organized. It is easier to list out tasks you’re done with when you had a task list to begin with. Try transferring one into the other and see the progress you’re making in productivity.
✓ Enjoy your achievements. Like we said, going through the list of things you’re done with as a celebration can be a powerful motivation tool for yourself to go on. If you need it more often, go through the lists more often.
