The Benefits of a Checklist
You planned a Halloween party and somehow forgot to buy ice and extra candy. You had it in your head the whole time to pick up both at the store, but every time you went, you somehow forgot. Next time, you’ll make a checklist of all of the things you need to remember for your party! Now, who can you call to bring the ice and candy…
Tailor Your Checklist
The Arena App: Daily Planner features both custom made and pre-built checklists for several tasks. All checklists in Arena are editable as well, so you can easily turn the Plan a Party checklist into your Plan a Halloween Party checklist, adding any holiday-specific tasks to the list, and deleting anything that you wouldn’t need for this type of party (i.e., thank you notes for gifts). The lists are available as you enter or edit a project, and can either be chosen from those provided or entered in according to your needs. Arena includes pre-built checklists for Home (Prepare for Houseguests), Work (Build a Presentation), and General (Review Weekly, based on David Allen’s Getting Things Done method).
Create Your Own Checklists
Arena also gives you the option to create your own checklist, which can have as many or as few items as you need to stay on track to complete your task. For instance, if you were getting ready to put your house on the market, you could create your own checklist for the steps you would need to complete in order to make the process as easy as possible (minus the stress level). Alternately, if you are in the market to buy a house (and aren’t selling one), you can create a checklist for what that process will entail as well, ensuring some level of ease (again, minus the stress level). You could even create a checklist for the fall fundraiser you volunteered to put together at the first PTA meeting!
As with any to-do list, the checklists found in The Arena App are available to help you move through your day as smoothly as possible, so that you know you did everything you could in the time you had available. With Arena, it’s not just a to-do list; it’s a way to find peace of mind.
