We all have to manage a plethora of things every day. And if you aren’t a full time landlord it can get difficult to keep track of work, home and then rentals. Here are a few list making tools I’ve tried and had success with (in no particular order). I can’t say I have a favorite but I can tell you not to make the same mistake I did and use multiple list making tools at once. It really just compounds the issue.
- Teux Deux—this simple clean to do list allows you to organize tasks the old fashioned way. With an easy to decipher, 7 days of the week, listing space you can’t miss any tasks. With an option for someday tasks and an automatic roll over feature it is definitely the most user friendly.
- Wunderlist—this pretty little list making app is the ultimate in design and features. With the option to set reminders, invite friends or colleagues, print your lists, share across multiple platforms and use a sticky note option—you’ll get the most mileage out of this app once you figure out all the bells and whistles.
- Workflowy—this list maker is the granddaddy of all list making apps. It allows you to take your brain and digitize it—but beware—it’s not for the faint of heart. Make sure you keep track of projects and don’t get lost on a tangent somewhere in the ether(s) of your mind.
- Evernote—this tool is startlingly cool and is the ultimate swipe file. Save anything and everything you find on the web and categorize it by tags. Searching is super easy. Keep tabs on all your favorite things. Think of it as a digital smash book of creative ideas and projects. This is better geared towards visual learners who don’t mind getting wrapped up in the pretty images and awesome research they’ve discovered and ultimately re-discovered.
- Google To Do (GTasks)—if you’re already a pretty savvy Google user there might not be a need for you to look any further than GTasks. This simple list making tool can be integrated right into your Google+ and Google Calendar Accounts. The easy access promises to keep all your information centralized.
- Dropbox—while this isn’t technically a list making tool I can’t help but put it on this list. Dropbox is essentially cloud storage where you can keeps documents, pictures, plans, pdfs and a host of other digitized info. You can share the docs with friend and co-workers alike. Never hunt for your thumb drive or email yourself again.
Check em’ out and see if they help you stay better organized.
