So, I’m not the best at getting things done. Betsy is much better.
It makes sense, she stresses about everything, I stress about very little.
Traditionally, she’s the one with the to-do list, I’m just the guy cracking jokes in the corner.
But even though I have a harder time getting things done, I still like getting things done.
So what can people like me do?
Though I don’t have the perfect answer, I can offer the solution that has worked for me.
To-Do Lists done your way
To-do lists have to be right for you, and they have to be right for me too.
Some people like writing lists down (Betsy). Others like voice notes. I like software.
What do you like? Find your solution, start using it, and stop making excuses.
Since I like software, this is how I can best make recommendations.
I have an iPod Touch 5th gen (basically an iPhone 5 w/o the phone) and – so far – my favorite app is Remember The Milk.
All the same software apps are typically available on iOS, Android, and the web.
My top app choices were between RTM, Astrid, Any.DO (which may turn into my fave once their iPhone app includes repeating tasks), and Wunderlist.
At the time of review (1/8/2013), here’s how I ordered them:
And I’m telling you, RTM has changed my life, so be sure to check it (or any of the other options, including handwritten lists) out.
Oh, and if you’re looking for a simple way to identify, track, and achieve goals check out Lift.
So what about you?
My advice? Test a solution, pick your favorite, go with it, and start getting more stuff done.
