I used to get into work and think “I’ve got in really early but I’ve got no idea what to do with my day”. That led to a problem; I had no way to measure whether I’d accomplished anything that day.
One such day I put out a tweet saying I had got into the office early but didn’t feel like I’d achieve anything. I got a reply from [@AdrianEXG](http://twitter.com/AdrianEXG) saying that I should set a goal or two for today to spur me on. So, I fired up [The Hit List](http://www.potionfactory.com/thehitlist/) and got to it. I’ve done it every day since; creating a new list, putting in my goals, setting the due date to the end of the day and switching to the “Today” list. It’s working well and I’d recommend it to anyone; after all, how do you know what you’ve achieved unless you’ve got some way of seeing that you’ve achieved it?
