Iron Man always gets things done.
Although I love social media it is not my first priority. I have a family to spend time with, a job to attend to, classes to study for, and seeing as I’m college bound in only one year scholarships to apply for.
That has all changed with the power of technology! I am just now starting to integrate the GTD mentality into my workflow and lifestyle. I am currently using 3 apps that are beyond incredible. All of them suit a different aspect of my personality:
- Do it (tomorrow): my procrastinating habits,
- Wunderlist: my obsessive need to have things organized and
- Dailydeeds: my horrible memory.
They are all simple intuitive apps that I have found can be applied to any lifestyle.
Not only does this app allow you to make a to-do list with alerts and time frames, you are able to seperate it for the different parts of your life. For me: Blog, Work and Personal and in each category you add your to do lists with time frames, or none its all your preference! Just remember to check back on each category if you don’t set a deadline! This is usually the last GTD app that I check because it’s used for more long term tasks. I update it at night so as to not feel overwhelmed by the tasks I need to get accomplished.
This app is simple. Add things you do everyday and give them a color, then check them off as you complete them. They also offer a calendar view so you can see when you did and didn’t do one of your tasks (from that view you can easily update what you forgot to to check off).
My favorite GTD app. A simple app with a few innovative features. You add your tasks regularly, but if you don’t finish them within the day they move to the next, or you could move it manually. It reduces my stress level, which can never be a bad thing! Of course because of the fact that you could just push any task off until 2015 it should only be used for tasks that can be neglected… heavily.
How do you stay productive?
