For some food truck owners, to-do lists are life savers; they keep them organized and on task. For others, they’re useless pieces of paper to ignore as they grow longer and longer. The next time you sit down to write a to-do list for your food truck (or decide to work on an existing one), follow these tips:

  • Break it down. To-dos are not the same as goals or projects. Only include specific tasks that move a project toward completion. If a to-do list item is too large to get done in one step, break it down further.
  • Include specifics. Help your future self out by including details that will make doing the task easier. Instead of “Get in touch with fishmonger,” try “Call Sam the Fishmonger about new supplier agreement at 555-5555.”
