One of the things that I talk about in the book is how to successfully manage a To Do list. I talk about how you can create your own customized free printable To Do list and I also share my own printable list that I created several years ago. This list has pretty much changed my life. I’m sharing it here today and the great news is that it’s now customizable and editable, which means you can type in your own section titles and personalize it any way that you would like (in any language too!).
**You do have to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer to print any kind of printable. If you do not have Adobe installed, you can download and install it from Adobe here for free.
Ok, so stick with me here, this may get a little confusing because there are two different printables that I’m sharing. First of all, directly below is my personal To Do list, that is not customizable or editable for you to type in and change:
If you like my this list exactly the way it is and do not want to customize it, you can print it here. Also, I just updated the To List (1/6/16) and if you want it as is and don’t need to customize it, you can download it directly below the image.
If you want to customize and change the titles of each section, see below.
If you want to customize your own To Do list or make pretty much any list imaginable, you will need this document below. This is what the document will look like when you click on the file to open (notice the light gray shaded fields):
The light gray shaded fields on the above document are all the spots that you can customize and type in your own section list headers. You can actually even type in on each line too, if you want to type in your list. To get to that file to customize and edit your own list, you can go here.
***It’s important to note that you cannot change the font. The font is standard on this list.
So I’m going to walk you through each little step for how to edit and print your list for those of you who have never edited a printable before. It’s really easy!
Step #1– Check first to see if you have Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer. Any acrobat program will work. If you do not have it, you can download and install here for free. The icon will look like one of these. If you do have it, you don’t have to do anything, it will kick in when you click on file:
Step #2– Click on link here to go and open the customizable document. This is exactly what your screen will look like after you open it (notice all of the light gray shaded fields):
Step #3– Type in your own text. Anywhere you see that shaded light gray are areas that you can type in whatever words you want. Don’t worry, the gray areas will not show up when you print your document. You can type on the list lines or in the boxes and customize your own list. You can create a list for anything!! For instance, I created a weekly to do list for my 11 year old daughter to help us keep up with her week and this is exactly what it looked like when I was done labeling the boxes:
Again, the shaded gray areas will not show up when I print my list above. It will just be blank, so don’t try and get rid of the shaded gray.
Step #4– Hit print after you are finished typing. This To Do list will print on standard 8.5 x 11″ copy paper and as long as your tray is full of paper, you are ready to go!
Here is a screen shot of where you click to print please read the note in the lower right hand corner of the image below:
Step #5– Choose the number of copies you want on the screen that pops up after you hit the printer button. This is what your screen will look like after you hit the printer button. Choose your number of copies where the red arrow is below:
Your all set!! See, it is that easy!
I have already created several lists including a Blog To Do List and a Holiday To Do/Gift List. The list possibilities are endless and are beyond just a To Do list.
Once again, if you want my list, exactly as it is and do not want to customize it, you can get to that file here. If you want to customize your own, that file is here. Thank you so much Rebecca Batchelor from Alpha Books/DK Publishing for making this document editable!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope this list is as helpful for you as it’s been for me!
