You need to create a to-do list that lets you check off each item, daily. It’s important that the items are in writing, that you can consult the list easily, and that you do check off each item off individually.
This adds up to three basic requirements that need to be met in order to use the daily list properly for this method.
Easy to consult, wherever you are: The list is a reminder device, so it must be with you at all times.
Easy to check off: You may like to check things off as they’re done, or check them several at a time, or check off the list once at the end of the day. In all of this cases, it should be absolutely simple to put a mark beside or cross out each item, which won’t be possible if the list can’t be marked. Which brings up the third requirement.
Easy to reset and reuse daily: The simplest approach to a list is to write it down or print it out, but then you have the problem of how to use it again after checking off the items.
