Day 3 of blog challenge: Which ONE tool are you going to use to become more productive?
Today’s challenge had me rethinking what I was using to be more productive. I was using Todist – but somehow some of my tasks would disappear without me having to check them off. It’s possibly operator error, but it wasn’t helping me stay productive. I would end up ignoring the app and just going off memory – which can be a bad thing.
My memory used to be so good, I could remember every date, phone number, important event -without a calendar! Now, with the addiction to the smartphone and the internet -my memory sucks. Are you the same way? Ever walk into a room in your home (or work) and wonder why the hell you were there? 😉
Anyway, Natalie talked about the key tools she uses on a daily basis to stay productive, which are Asana, Google for everything, Evernote, Dropbox, LastPass and HeadSpace. (Note to self, must look into LastPass and HeadSpace.)
I’ve heard other coaches mention Asana as a way they keep everything organized. This morning, I quickly downloaded the app on my phone and opened up the site on my desktop. It looks intuitive – but it’s not. At least not for me! I wasted a good hour trying to figure out how the hell to create tags and repeating dates. Yeah, I gave up. Total waste of time for ME. I got frustrated and deleted the app.
So I googled what was a good to do list that synced with Google. Came across TickTick, read the reviews and thought I would try it out. So far, I like it. TickTick will be replacing Todist as my daily to do list tracker.
What productivity tool do you use to stay organized?
