I’m a bit of a list maniac. I’ve tried all sorts: paper, Evernotes, outlook, todoist, project management and lots more. My current favourite is trello.
One of my colleagues showed me this combination of lists, cards and checklists, and it was love at first sight. It pleases my brain to create the framework and follow up on it every day.
My organisation system is always evolving but I like the current one. I have a weekly list which includes cards for each week with checklists for recurring and priority 1, 2 and 3 tasks, although I hardly ever use priority 3.
I then have similarly structured daily lists, where cards are created automatically with the standard recurring tasks, such as daily mantra, checking my priority emails, my weekly tasks, my team’s upcoming deadlines etc.
I love the checklist structure: I can tick off tasks as I go ahead with my day, which makes me feel super efficient. I can easily order them on the desktop version (although they’re difficult to arrange on the mobile). But the fact that it also has a mobile version is big plus as well.
We have started using trello with my team as well, sharing priorities, following up on standard monthly reports, planning holidays as well. It’s still a work in progress but it has a lot of potential…
What are your go-to tips for task management? Any favourite app or system? Let me know, maybe I’ll find my next obsession there 🙂
