It's easy to remember the pile of things you have to do in the future. Once it's done, you'll probably forget it quickly. At the end of every week, write down what you accomplished that week so you have something quantifiable to show for it.

As one Reddit user suggests, having a log of what you've accomplished each week can be handy when it comes time to negotiate for promotions, update your resume, or just feel better about how much work you've done. Many workers don't have a quantifiable list of what they have done each week, and not all contributions can be readily seen. Keeping a notebook or document of your accomplishments can make it easier to know if you're really contributing as much as you think you are. And help you prove it.
