BETTER LIVING | The New To-Do List

Print More


The majority of us organized Cornell students begin our days with a similar task: the quick draft of a to-do list. Writing out of all the things we need to accomplish throughout the day makes the daunting tasks ahead seem more manageable. Finish reading that psych chapter. Submit first draft of the essay. Buy more staples from The Cornell Store. Print readings. Complete problem set. However, the majority of our lists are missing many key bullets—things we should take time to do every day but frequently place on the back burner. These are events or tasks that are enjoyable rather than unnerving: they are for ourselves rather than for our classes or extracurriculars.
