Is it just us or does every day seem like a battle against the clock? It’s a proven fact that writing down lists increases productivity and helps you break up seemingly huge and impossible tasks into smaller chunks. Try focusing on the top three most important things you need to get done each day and then fit in other, smaller tasks when those priorities have been checked off. We’ve collected some pretty cool to-do apps for your phone, but if you want a good ol’ paper list, feast your eyes on these pretty FREE printables that definitely provide visual motivation to stop the procrastination.
