Make a To-Do List Before Turning in at Night

Making a to-do list before bed every night is a great way to prioritize what you want to accomplish tomorrow. At the same time, it can help you relax and free your mind from thinking about tomorrow’s responsibilities. You can sleep easier knowing you’ll wake up feeling organized and in control of your day. Here’s how to make the most of your to-do list today:



  • Don’t overload your list by including more than you can get done in a day. This can cause you to feel overwhelmed before your head hits the pillow. Instead, list a maximum of five things you want to get done, in order of importance.
  • Make first things first. Do the first thing on your list as soon as you can in the morning, when you’re most fresh. Distractions are inevitable as the day progresses, so this way you’re sure to accomplish your highest priority item.
  • Use your list as a memory extender. Knowing you’ve listed and prioritized tomorrow’s needs gives you permission to forget about them tonight.

Title & Total Compensation Project Update – June 2019


The University of Wisconsin (UW) is embarking on a complete redesign of its current classification and compensation structure. The goal of the Title & Total Compensation Project will be to develop new systems that will enable institutions to continue to attract and retain the best talent.

For Title & Total Compensation Project background information related to job titles, job descriptions, compensation, and benefits, please see this handout.

Managers and Division Leaders – would you like a poster for your area about Title & Total Compensation Project? Please print off this poster and showcase within your department!

Recent UW System Updates:

  • Updated job titles & standard job descriptions are on track to be posted online by the end of the calendar year 2019. The TTC project team will work over the summer to provide a proposed match for each employee to an updated job title. This step will allow employees to discuss their specific job title and standard job description with managers. Employees and managers can anticipate fall training in preparation for employee-manager conversations in winter 2019-2020. The fall training will offer instructions on where to find the updated titles and job descriptions, the new job title structure, and the next steps. This work sequence will allow for more productive and informed employee-manager conversations.
  • Thank you for participating in the Employee Benefits Preferences Survey. We were pleased that forty-seven percent (18,634) of UW benefits-eligible employees took the survey to help the UW assess employee priorities, needs, and wants related to benefits. Our project partner, Mercer Consulting, is developing a summary of the survey with a comparative analysis of benefits other employers with similar workforces are offering. We anticipate that this summary will be made available to employees in fall 2019. The TTC project team will develop benefits enhancement recommendations that will be shared with employees, based on Mercer’s analyses, by the end of the calendar year 2019.
