– My to do list for today (Yes I know I write like a 6-year-old)

Step 1. Wake the fuck up. Brush teeth, shower etc. Perform your morning rituals. This will allow for your brain to wake up. I usually write my list after a hearty breakfast as I feel more switched on and awake by then.

Step 2. Find a piece of paper. Or a piece of cardboard, or an old receipt or even your least favourite sister’s birth certificate. Whatever float’s your boat.

Step 3. Begin with the heading “Today I….”. By writing “Today I…” instead of something else like “Jordan’s dumb fucking list of shit to do…” you trick your brain into believing that you have already done the things you are about to write. This plays a trick on your subconscious and results in ‘What the mind believes, it achieves’.

Step 4. Rack your brains! Write everything down that you can think of that you need to get done today! Don’t put anything unachievable down and don’t write a list as long as a text-book. Only write what you think you can get done today.

Step 5. Keep it on you. If you leave home, fold it up, keep it in your pocket. It must be attached to you for the day.

Step 6. Mark them off. Draw a line through each task after completion. This provides you with a sense of accomplishment and the hunger to do more.

So there you have it. The most effective way to write a daily to do list.

Bringing you closer to making fat stacks, achieving your goals and upping your happiness.
