Jake Lodwick has created an online-customizable and free-print-out management system called Standards. In Lodwick’s own words:
Every week, he uses this site to print a PDF with the things he wants to do (and not do) that week. Then he tapes it to a wall and puts a check or an X in each box as the week goes on.
It reminds us of the chore-calendars kids have at school when learning to complete tasks regularly. While this grown-up version does not come with gold stars, it can help you to obtain things like better habits, more money, and a balanced work schedule (or, according to the version we created, at least a Pulitzer Prize).
