Another benefit to this is if your task list is set up in such a way that you can tell when the task was completed. I use a bullet journal with a new list for each week. If I want to know when I took my car to the mechanic or the last time my house was vacuumed, it's easy for me to flip back and look.

Am I the only one who read her name wrong first time? Must be dyslexia.

Obviously. Then when I feel like I haven't got anything done I can go all courtroom drama on my brain and dramatically present the evidence.

This also documents that the task was done. Helpful if its on another todo list which is currently not at hand. Also helps preventing adding it as new todo since it was already done.

This is actually a really good point. Sometimes I forget I did something...

I most definitely used to have a "to-done" list, completely separate from any to-do list. I think it helped me to get a better sense of how long things actually took and gave me an opportunity to focus on my accomplishments, rather than just my failures.

I think I need to pay attention to this to improve the dread I feel before starting certain tasks. If I know I only have to withstand it for 5 minutes, I'd be more likely to do it.

Imo this is a super good way to encourage getting things done and also using your to-do list!

If it's not in my completed tasks history, it doesn't count. I want it to count!
