Check the Box

To-do lists can help us get stuff done. An animated gif of your completed to-list is evidence of your awesome ability to get stuff done.  

1) Use software on your computer, an app on your phone or an old fashioned pen and paper to create a to-do list of tasks or things you need to complete. 

2) Start a task or thing on your list. Complete it. For each completed task or thing, take a screen capture or photo and then continue to work through the list. 

3) Once you have completed each task or thing on your list, compile your screen captures or photos and then publish as an animated gif.

4) Share your achievement with the world.

There’s something you should know about me…

I’m obsessed with stationary, lists, pens, paper, letters, packaging, boxes, and bags. You name it, I probably like it. Along with my never ending quest for the best pen or journal or whatnot, I’ve also taken to making lists for anything from work to school.

During the school year and during this class, it is very easy to get swallowed up in the many papers, meetings, work functions, practicums, etc. and lists tend to keep me sane. Keeping an organized list with boxes that I can check makes everything seem more manageable somehow.

I created this GIF out of this week’s assignment list. If anyone out there is feeling a little bit anxious about the work for this class, writing it all down and getting the stuff out sometimes helps!

The GIF video showed up as an error and I redid it multiple times… I added the working GIF to iMovie and added it here.
