About the To-do List template
What is a To-do list?
To-do lists are simple, yet effective tools that can break down bigger tasks into smaller, concrete steps. They can range from individual daily tasks, to larger group goals. You can make a to-do list for any project, anytime your team needs to get something done. Breaking down tasks into concrete steps helps your team reach your goals with ease.
What are the benefits of to-do lists? They are a great way to organize tasks, from the mundane to the more difficult. They also keep your team focused, and progressing toward your goals.
How to use the To-do List template
If you already have a physical list, start by taking a photo of it and uploading it to the online board. Next, you can prioritize tasks by color-coding them or organizing them by urgency. You can upload other file types like photos, videos, and documents to keep all relevant information in one place.
Here’s an example of a simple, actionable to-do list:
Send an email update to the team: 9am today
Call the design agency to finalize mockups: 1:00pm today
Touch base with recruiters about new role: Tuesday
Meet with the engineering team: Thursday

5 tips for creating a to-do list
Assign due dates: It’s too easy to make a list of tasks you need to accomplish and let it sit on your computer. To incentivize yourself to finish your tasks, try assigning due dates to each item on the list. That makes it simpler for you to track milestones, keep yourself focused, and make sure everything gets done.
Sort your list based on priorities: If you don’t have concrete deadlines for each task, you can also sort your list according to the urgency of each task. Put the more urgent tasks toward the top and work your way down.
Revise your list daily: At the beginning or end of each day, take a look at your list. Move things around as new needs come up. Take the time to check things off.
Reward yourself for completing tasks: Some people like to assign rewards for finishing each task. To motivate yourself, try writing down the ways you plan to treat yourself when you finish something up.
Limit yourself to 3 to 5 tasks: We’ve all created huge to-do lists with 10 or 12 tasks. It’s overwhelming to stare at a list with dozens of things you haven’t accomplished. Instead, limit yourself to bite-sized chunks of work, and stick to 3 to 5 tasks you can get through in a day or a week.
