How to Easily Frame a Daily Task List

We’re sharing how to easily frame a daily task list today!

Did you know the second Friday of January is called “Quitters Day” because most people have already given up their New Year’s goals and resolutions?

While I completely understand how intoxicating the promise of a fresh start on January 1st can be, I want to gently remind you that it’s never too late to get started forming healthy habits and reaching for your goals no matter the date, month, or season.

Two of the biggest things that have helped me create healthy habits and reach my goals over the years is to:

  • write them down so I can refer to them whenever I feel stuck.
  • create a plan that breaks each goal down *so small* it easily fits into my daily life.

First, I’ll write down each goal in my paper planner.

Then I map out the steps for each goal in my DIY framed quarterly calendar so I can work on them daily and weekly.

At the end of each month, I reassess each goal and habit to see how things are going and examine what part needs to be revamped.

Turning a Goal into a Habit…

While that simple system has worked well so far, there are times when I want to turn a specific goal into a daily habit which means making the habit part of my overall daily routine.

For example, once I realized how much the Colleen Rothschild Skincare Products changed my skin, I knew I needed to make it a priority every day.

I was really good at remembering to wash my face every morning and night.

But I would frequently forget to apply the serums and creams afterwards.

Thankfully, habit stacking and a framed daily task list helped save the day!

Using Habit Stacking and a Framed Daily Task List…

I stacked the goal of remembering to apply serums and creams with the already established habit of washing my face using James Clear’s habit stacking technique.

Then I gave myself a visual cue reminder with a framed daily task list and made it part of my morning and evening routine.

While there are definitely times I’m too tired or struggle to stay motivated when I don’t feel well, I can honestly say having a framed daily task list has helped me to consistently stay on track.

Especially, during the times I’m trying to form new habits and routines.

After all, it helps cut down on decision fatigue and wondering, “What should I do next?”

Here’s a look at how to easily frame a daily task list…

Daily Task List Supplies:

  • Photo Frame with Glass
  • Home Computer and Printer
  • Heavy Cardstock or Printer Paper
  • Scissors
  • Dry Erase Markers

How to Frame a Daily Task List Steps:

Make sure your frame is free from dust and debris.

Type and print out your daily task list or desired routine using your home computer and printer.

I created this daily task list using my morning routine.

You could also create an evening routine list, a modern-day cleaning schedule, daily blog or business task list, use our simplified and organized home challenge list or even create a chore chart for the littles.

Basically, this idea is based around a series of tasks or habits you want to repeat each day.

Once you have your list printed out, cut your task list paper to size.

Remember to use caution and care as scissors will be sharp.

Next, place the paper into the frame in the same way you would frame a picture.

Again, remember to use caution and care as glass and frame insert tabs will be sharp.

Finally, turn the frame over. Your framed task list should be visible and ready to use!

Keep in Mind…

Keep in mind, it’s easier to use a small to medium size frame.

That way, you can easily take it with you from room to room if you need to or it can be stored on a desktop or dresser without taking up too much space.

How to Write On and Clean Your Daily Task List…

Remember to use dry erase markers when crossing things off your framed daily task list.

At the end of each day, you can remove the lines with water or isopropyl alcohol in the same way you clean a dry erase board.

Keep in mind, the marker residue will transfer to whatever cloth or towel you’re using.

So, it might be best to use a lint free paper towel.

Small Changes Lead to Big Impacts…

As with anything, creating new habits takes time and patience.

Choose something super small to start with like washing your face, laying out your workout clothes or loading the dishwasher each night.

Then once you’ve established that habit, pair it with something else you want to do.

For example:

  • After I wash my face, I will apply serums and creams.
  • After I lay out my work out clothes, I will fill my water bottle.
  • After I load the dishwasher, I will wipe down the kitchen counters.
  • After I pick up my groceries, I will put gas in the car.
  • After I sit down to eat dinner, I will put away my phone.
  • After I go through the mail, I will immediately shred the junk mail.

Once you’re consistent with those things, you can keep adding additional habits one by one until you’ve created a routine that enhances your daily life.

As always, I’ll be cheering you on.
