The past year I have been developing myself in areas I've never ever paid any attention to. It's the small details in life that turn dirt into gold. Whenever something crosses my mind from personal experience, ideas, concept or tactics on how to improve yourself I'll post it here. If you want to have a personal chat, feel free to chat/call me on Skype. Why this thread? Sharing ideas on how to become better, stronger and wealthier financially and spiritually. ______________________________________ Having a To-Do list Alright, you must've heard everywhere that a to-do list is a must, yes it is! I've tried various methods to keep an effective to-do list: Google Calendar Custom C# software Paper (horizontal lines) Paper (squared) Paper blank Paper (low quality) Paper (higher quality) Notebooks Diary/Calendar book Notepad++ (software) Notepad (Windows) Sticky notes (Windows) Excel Paper notebooks Cellphone notepad Writing on my hands Whiteboard in my room The ones that currently I work with: notepad++ (having a detailed to-do list) Notebook (paper with plastic cover) Calendar notebook (hardcover) Notepad (for short-term); before you close windows it'll popup so you won't forget to do X or Y Cellphone notepad (when I'm not on my laptop) Most recent experiment: Got myself something like this for 1$ ( click for image ) I use it to write everything down: my to-do list ; idea's; concepts; strategies. And I think the biggest mistake I've been doing day in and day out was not to take notes of what I read on the internet or BlackHatWorld. When reading something about Pinterest or SEO, I usually don't write it down. And what happens is, within X days/weeks/months I waste time searching for that one thread I've once read.
