I was recently referred by Jeanine McLeod to Toodledo. It took me a couple weeks just to figure out how to say it, and then starting to use it.
I actually spent $.99 on it; I usually just do free apps. (It also has an online version; it can easily convert to Excel)
Toodledo is an app that helps you keep track of things on your “To Do” list. What makes this application so powerful in my opinion is that it takes the items on list, with the due dates & priority you assign it, and sorts the list to give you the things you need to do ASAP.
Steven Covey shares his model of important/unimportant/etc. and this app supports this by helping you focus on the urgent and important task first and the rest later.
Now I can take all those things on my “To Do” list, which for me is multiple sheets of paper all over the place trying to come together, and have one “To Do” list on my phone so it’s always with me. When I’m ready to do work I can easily click on my list and see what comes up the highest priority.
This saves me time by not having to wade through everything on my list to try to determine what I should do next, and really makes me eat that frog right away even if it’s not something that I want to do. It is top of the list so it needs to be done!
How are you currently managing your “To Do” list?
And is it working?
