Here’s a simple daily practice that will not only help you stay more productive throughout the day, but also give you an opportunity to build your visual vocabulary: create a sketched to-do list.
For me, even the shaded box that I start with gives me some motivation for checking it off.
The icon next to it gives a quick visual reference for what that task is all about.
Finally, a few words add the necessary details.
The next time you need an extra kick to get things done, give this sketchnoted to-do list a try!
