It may be one of the most underrated tools in your arsenal: the to-do list is commonplace, and decidedly unsexy. It’s simple to devise, doesn’t require technology and is easy to update. When you add motivation to the mix, a to-do list becomes a powerful tool for accomplishment.

Using a to-do list:

• allows a person to concentrate on the task at hand

• frees the mind to think about other things

• ensures that work is handled in an orderly manner

• provides a plan for work flow

• encourages a person to think through many facets of the job

In the workbook that accompanies the Legacy Project Workshop, we’ve included a to-do list (page 82). The Succession Planning Action Guide is designed as a step-by-step task list through the comprehensive succession planning process. Please take a few moments, review the guide and let us know how we may help you get started.
