Lists are very good things.
Be it a To-Do list, a shopping list, a playlist, a list of resolutions.
Lists give structure and organization, help with focus and priorities.
They bring order to chaos. They help prevent procrastination.
There are some people who are not fans of listicles (list-based articles) but here’s a few pointers that might make them change their minds…
1) Lists can relieve anxiety and stress – getting thoughts out of your head and onto some paper can give clarity and foster calm.
2) By their very nature, lists are concise. Lists use the least amount of words possible to explain whatever it is you need to remember and focus on.
3) Research has shown that people who write lists are more likely to achieve their goals. It’s all about being able to clearly see what you’re aiming for.
And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love the sense of achievement that crossing things off a list brings?
Tick, Tick, Tick.
At Sketch Videos we love a list.
Because we love to simplify the complicated and bring order to chaos.
We love that you can clearly state what it is you want, and that you can share that clarity with others.
And, we’d love to help you with your list – be it on a poster, a screensaver or a video.
Because in the modern world, being listless, is not an option.
