By producing a checklist, what you have done is programmed your mind with an "intention which is akin to a purpose". If you have a well defined and clear, achievable purpose for your day, it will keep you well motivated and inspired to stay on course. It will also help you to stay totally committed to the 'plan' instead of veering off course. For every single task that has been accomplished, even the smaller ones, cross it off the checklist for positive affirmation. From time to time, you might not be able to finnish every task on your checklist by the end of the day due to a number of factors not under your control.

When you are able to structure and allocate your time better and more efficiently, you take control of your productivity through discipline and focus.
