WHAT DOES YOUR TO-DO LIST SAY ABOUT YOU?
Woman’s World magazine ran an interesting article recently about how the type of to-do list you keep is related to your personality. See what yours says about you:
Digitized To-Do’s: You’re perseverance personified!
If you can’t live without your Blackberry or iPhone and keep it handy to track your task list, you’re likely logical and analytical. Keeping a digital to-do list is like making a “contract” with yourself to accomplish those tasks.
Color-Coded or Alphabetized Plans: You’re a visionary!
If your day planner uses colour-coding or alphabetization, this type of organization shows you’re a big picture thinker, constantly rearranging the puzzle pieces to get a better idea of what the future holds.
Doodle-Decorated Lists: You’re a focused artiste!
To-do lists decorated with doodles in the margin are a sign of a creative, artistic person. Contrary to popular belief, the focus required for doodling actually helps improve memory recall by 30%. Doodles on your agenda reveals an active mind, driven to succeed!
Scrap Paper or Post-Its: You’re an adaptable stress-junkie!
Lists kept on pieces of paper or post-it notes demonstrate that you’re able to respond to situations quickly and thrive on last-minute pressure. This style of task-keeping is typically done by an open-minded and adaptable spontaneous thinker.
Skip Lists Altogether? You’re an instinctive go-getter!
Most people have trouble recalling diverse tasks, so if you ditch the list in favour of remembering your tasks on your own, you’re an instinctive prioritizer and trust yourself to remember important items on your own.
