Never has anyone procrastinated more than I have. Okay, maybe there’s been, like, three people, ever, who’ve reached my level of peak procrastination, and I’m sure they’re all writers, too. In addition to being a master procrastinator, I have about 17 jobs and probably also ADHD. So keeping a to-do list is imperative to me barely functioning as a person in this world.
Seriously, without my list full of red bold and underlines and 18-point font for REALLY, REALLY RIDICULOUSLY IMPORTANT SHIT, everyone I’ve ever worked with would be way more annoyed with me than they already are. Still, every once in a while, I worry my system isn’t good enough and try some fancy app or service with reminders and sub-categories and inevitably I miss something tucked in a category or bullet of a bullet.
So far for me, a single list with all my to-dos in one place is the absolute best way for me to keep track of my myriad tasks. Plus, there’s just something so fucking satisfying about crossing an item off of a list. Because I have a bajillion things to do and work on multiple devices, I keep my running list in a Google doc and use strikethrough, but when I’m determined to have a really productive day (or at least a few hours) I always make a paper list of that day’s priorities. That magic little day list is what inspired this free printable Shit To Do list. And if you’re a seemingly normal person with a reasonable amount of things you tend to put off completing, it may even be able to serve as your primary to-do list.
This list features three categories:
- Just fucking get this done already.
- Ugh. Do I have to?
- This shit can probably wait.
I set it up to print two lists on letter-size paper, so you can print one page, cut it in half, and voila!
As with all of my printables thus far, this Shit To Do list is free, and as you may or may not know by now, the only catch is that you need to “buy” the digital file from my store. You don’t have to pay any money or give any credit card info or anything like that. You just have to plug some information into some boxes. But I promise I won’t sell your email address, or stalk you (unless you’re really super fucking cool), and I think if you create an account it makes it really easy to download it next time. The only other thing I ask in return is that you follow me on Instagram. I hear my feed is pretty entertaining, and my stories even more so (though my whole new-shitty-glasses saga recently wasn’t very exciting).
And, really, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram. We’re on the honor system here. Don’t be a dick.
