Abstract : I keep a project list and a master to-do list of all the things I think are important. I draw from those lists at the beginning of each day to create a daily to-do list of things I intend to accomplish. I make accomplishing those items a sort of game and challenge myself to see how many of them I can check off by the end of the day. I use paper lists because I like the feel of physically crossing off things off, and therefore I receive the penalty of having to rewrite and relist items I dont do for the next days list. Finishing items so I dont have to rewrite them is a motivator for me, too.
