If you are planning a wedding in Salt Lake City you likely have many tasks to perform and otherwise keep track of. Many people pride themselves on their ability to remember or perform well on the fly without much preparation. I am not one of them and cannot emphasize enough the necessity of keeping a daily To Do list to make sure I accomplish everything I need to accomplish and avoid the possibility that an important task gets overlooked.
Have you ever traveled all the way to the grocery store only to discover that you cannot remember what you wanted to buy once you got there? Or perhaps you arrived at the grocery store to buy five items but only remembered three of them. This may seem like an obvious suggestion but actually writing out a To Do List is an easy way to remember all tasks you wanted to perform. This is especially true for the tasks that do not come effortlessly to you.
Making a To Do list does more than simply keep you from forgetting important tasks. What youare actually doing when you make a To Do list is you are relinquishing your memory (and will power) to the list. Allow the list to tell you what to do and check off the tasks as you complete them. This technique works well for getting done what you do not necessarily want to get done but know you must get done because it takes the edge off remembering. When you are planning a wedding the last thing you need is more stress.
I have found that writing a list of tasks to perform serves to “free me up” a little if there is part of me that does not want to perform a task and keeps stopping me through procrastination or self-sabotage. This technique works well as a source of motivation especially at first but then looses its power as time progresses. But for events like a wedding where the planning will come to an end on a specific date a To Do list works great. There is a free app available called Errands To-Do List that I use all the time and is easy to use.
