Happy Memorial Day (tomorrow)!

Memorial Day or Decoration Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces.
It marks the unofficial start of the summer vacation season,[3] while Labor Day marks its end.
Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day – Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving, whereas Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.

Now that summer (vacation season) is here let's try to make how we do things more efficient and accomplish what we want to work on. Here is a great list of ways to use a To Do list for the best results.

5 Ways to Improve Your To-Do Lists
To-Do lists should be an invaluable part of any small business person’s day-to-day. They don’t just help you get things down, they help keep you motivated and on track. Now, they seem pretty self-explanatory, right? Write down a task. Then do it. But sometimes they can quickly go from being useful to useless. A to-do list can too easily take a wrong turn and become exhaustive and exhausting. Here are five quick tips to help you get the most from your to-do lists.

1. Get An App
Bad news, paper and pen lovers: apps are the best way to manage your to-do lists now. They’re able to do more and do it better.

2. Be Specific
Don’t write: “Email clients.” Do write: “Email three clients” or “Email Bob, Mary, and Ted.” After all, how are you supposed to really know when you’re done with “Email clients”?

3. Be Realistic
You’re a small business owner, so I know you have a lot of things to do. That might make you feel inclined to put everything you want to get done in a day on your list. Don’t.

4. Prioritize Items
Most of us can’t put together a list of tasks right away in order of priority. Chances are you’ll think of tasks at random. That doesn’t mean you should just throw them on your list randomly. Your list should never be random.

5. Celebrate Your Accomplishments
When you’ve reached the end-of-your-day, take a moment to really appreciate everything that you got done and crossed off from your to-do list.
