I have to admit that I am a bit of a list junkie. I love making lists, editing lists and best of all… checking items off a To-Do list. There is even research that shows checking items off a To-Do list can be just as productive as the actual task itself for motivation and inspiration.

Planning for any type of travel can be stressful and complicated, and 12 months away is just going to amplify the situation. There are a tone of tips and tricks for a good to do list, but one article I often refer back to is this one from LifeHacker on How to Make Your To-Do List Doable.

Currently my wife and I are using Wunderlist. It’s a great program with lost of extra features and works on all platforms- iPhone/iPad, Mac, PC, Web.

Some of the lists that we have going already at this early stage:

  • Essential packing items
  • Bali Villa feature list
  • School
  • Things to do
  • Finance
  • Medicine
  • Applications
  • Business logistics
  • House clean-out
  • Calendar

As crazy as the above looks, it is somewhat comforting to know that we are getting thoughts out of our head and into some coherent form.

Lots more ‘To Do’ for now… next update coming soon.
