I am constantly tweaking, analyzing, and researching better ways to be more productive. I am currently using a tool called “Todoist." With Todoist, I can create projects, and every task goes into one of the projects. I have work, financial, health, personal, and many more projects that I am working on daily. Before I found Todoist, I used many different tools to help me stay on track. Unfortunately, most of the devices were always missing something that I felt was important. Todoist also works across multiple platforms, so if I put a task on my iPhone, it will also show up on my iPad and my Macbook. This is important for me, so I don't have to add a task or project to one platform. Here is what you do to determine if a tool is right for you;
Determine your needs - Once you know what you need, you can quickly eliminate tools that don't fit.
Don’t be afraid to experiment - There are many tools available that you can try on a trial basis to see if they will work for you.
If you decide you don’t like a tool, let it go - Just because you are using a tool, if you decide it’s not working for you or, in some cases holding you back, look for something better.
Ask productive friends or coworkers what they are using - Sometimes, you have someone around you using a tool that would be perfect for you. Always ask.
Never become content - Many people used relevant tools 5 or 10 years ago, but new technologies have made them obsolete. You could be doing twice the work in the same amount of time. Always make sure you consistently look for ways to improve.
Everything is not for everybody - Don’t join a herd. Many people are using a tool that doesn’t necessarily make it right. Research and make sure it's the right fit for you.
