The main purpose of a to do list is to provide yourself with a list of your priorities in order to ensure that you don't forget anything and are able to effectively plan out your tasks so that they are all accomplished in the correct time frame. A well maintained to do list will set your mind at ease since you will always have a clear picture of what you need to get done.

A to do list is important because it keeps your tasks and obligations in order. An organized list makes things more manageable and keeps you mentally focused on the tasks at hand.

The best time to make a daily to do list is either the night before, or first thing in the morning. The biggest benefit of a well organized to do list is the peace of mind that comes with having a plan in place. Going to bed with a plan for the next day in place can lead to better sleep. Making a list first thing in the morning will give you a plan for a successful day.

It's important to keep your to do list manageable. An impossible task list can increase feelings of stress. It is often recommended to keep to do lists to 3 items maximum. If you need to have more than 3 items, try to include no more than 1 "big" task and fill the list out with some "medium" or "small" tasks that are easy to accomplish.

To do list apps such as the Microsoft To Do app are the best ways to create a to do list on your phone. With Microsoft To Do you can easily create and sync your task lists across multiple devices so you have your to do list available whether you are on your desktop, phone, or tablet.
