To say that I change productivity apps as often as I change my underwear wouldn’t be too far from the truth.
When I made the switch from a Blackberry to an IPhone in 2009, I realized that you can actually use your phone for much more than email and text.
Immediately I started spending countless hours in the App Store scouring for the next big thing that would eliminate a desk full of stickies.
After many attempts at simplifying my life and keeping my tasks under control I quickly reverted back to my old Blackberry trick.
Come on you’ve all done it….
Yes, that’s right. You guessed it.
Email your todo list to yourself every night for the next day!!!
From there it gets even better. Print your To-Do list off and start scratching away. Not only is this 3 step process time consuming, you just don’t look like you have things under control (in life).
After listening to a few of these, I started to notice a common trend amongst these super smart and insanely productive people.
They are all using Wunderlist.
Screw it, I’m jumping on that bandwagon too!
What is Wunderlist?
Wunderlist syncs your todo lists among multiple platforms. Basically it’s your “Git R Dun” tool (I promise I’ll never say that again).
Allows you to update and edit lists on your Desktop, Smartphone, and Tablet.
It’s so clean and simple that you almost don’t know what you are supposed to do when you first start using it.
This is right off the website.
How I use Wunderlist
Unless a task is something that is important and has to get done, it won’t show up in my Wunderlist. I’m still using Outlook to manage my calendar.
I don’t use if for every email and phone message I need to respond to, I’d like to think that my memory is still semi functional. [click to continue…]
