Many people have a to-do list to keep track of tasks that they might otherwise forget to do. This organization is a great way to help remember everything that you need to do. Having a to-do list can also help you plan your work ahead of time. As we have learned, a little planning can greatly improve your motivation and productivity.

A pen and paper is all you really need for a task list, but many people prefer using their PDA because it can keep track of important information such as due-dates and priorities. The problem with PDAs is that they have tiny screens are often difficult to use.

A web-based task list is the best of both worlds. It's easy to use and is accessible from anywhere, even from your cellphone! Toodledo.com is probably the most fully functional web-based task manager out there. Give it a try (it's free).

Neurotrophins are small proteins that are naturally produced in the brain and act like mental nutrients. A constant level of neurotrophins are required just to keep the neurons alive. Neurotrophins are also responsible for pruning out unwanted cells and for stimulating the growth of new dendrites.

Stimulating your mind with new and interesting experiences causes it to increase the production of neurotrophins, which in turn increase the strength and complexity of the dendrites. It causes neurons to connect to different areas of the brain and form new patterns. The more connections you have, the more ways you have to remember a piece of information.

So, seeking out novel experiences is a great way to keep your mind in shape.
