A great tool to keep you on track: Wunderlist
How often do you forget about things that you were supposed to do? Or set up a whole new action plan for your life with lots of daily exercises but they get lost after a few days as you haven't set a reminder? I'd like to introduce you to a very simple but practical & powerful tool to keep you on track: Wunderlist.
Before I start, I'd like to underline that there are plenty of apps available out there that could help you to manage your reminders and notes. My point is not to say that Wunderlist is perfect, I just got used to it and I found very efficient and user friendly. It has been a very valuable tool for me over the last couple years so I might as well give a bit of a tutorial about it! Let's start!
Wunderlist is available on App store and Google play to download for free. Create your account and there you are, ready to go.
First of all, create your list. Give it the name you want. It could be work, project, gym... Once your list is created you can either keep it private or share it with a group of people. I've found group sharing very powerful when you have multiple persons working on the same project. Everyone can interact with the list and update it live.
Now that you have your list, you can start creating tasks to-do. Very simple and intuitive, enter your task and just press enter. You can then add a due date, make the task repetitive or assign it to a specific person in the group.
You can also add notes and subtasks to each task so you can really get into details.
Every time you accomplish a task, you just need to tick the box on front of it and that's it, the task is archived!
I literally use it for every single thought/action I have. I just throw it in there and so I can get back to it later. By doing this, I can focus on the main task that I'm doing and not being worried about forgetting the other tasks I need to do.
I've found it also very useful when I read a book as I can keep all my notes about it and review them whenever I need. In other words, it's my best friend and back up brain!
Finally, the app is available for cell phones, laptop & computer and it's synchronizing live so you can use it on all platforms.
So download the app, play with it and keep it up to date so you don't miss a thing!
