Why You Should Create a Life Checklist

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 2

A life checklist is a list of things to do that you want to get done during your lifetime. You should make a checklist of all the items that you would like to experience in life. Having this list of things to do can change your life for the better.

Checklist for Life

Live your life with purpose. Creating a life checklist can give you direction, as well as excitement for doing things that you know will bring you happiness and fulfillment. How do I know if they’ll bring you happiness and fulfillment? Because they are your own goals that you have set your mind on and you’ll feel like your life is complete once you begin checking off your own items that you plan to finish. When you decide whether something gets done or not, you take charge of your life. The feeling of having control of your life invigorates you with determination that begins to give your life more meaning.

Where will your mind take you? Having a checklist for life gives you the ability to begin creating the life you want. I know that once you write a goal, your mind starts to work on completing that goal. For example, I finally decided that I wanted to live my dream and become a writer. I joined InfoBarrel to help me practice and sharpen my writing skills. The moment I joined and created my profile, I wrote one article but started wondering how I could ever write more. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to come up with enough topics to write about. Well, I decided to write my goal of becoming a writer on a list of things to do. Almost instantly, as I was doing random things around the house, I started to become distracted because my mind started coming up with topics I could write about. I even had to start carrying a notebook and pen around to jot all the ideas that were coming in.

Accountability and responsibility. Creating a checklist for life makes you take responsibility for the things that happen in your life. When you have a life checklist, you become accountable for completing the items you listed. You’re responsible for completing them because you wrote them down. No one else did. If you didn’t want to complete the list of things to do, then you wouldn’t have written it on your list. You can really look at your life and find the things that are most important to you and begin to ignore everything else that doesn’t move you closer to reaching your goals.

Life goals become more real. Lastly, you should create a life checklist because everything written becomes more real, more obtainable and more achievable. You will begin to see that the items on your list don’t seem that far out of reach or impossible anymore. I’m not sure what it is that makes the goal more realistic for you, but something happens to your mindset and you begin to find that the life checklist you created can become completed, accomplished and checked off. The list of things to do in your lifetime are not as daunting as you may have thought before.

Now is the time to get motivated about your life. Change your life for the better. Get started on making that life checklist a list of things to do and complete!
