Today I put away all my turtlenecks. We are closer to May than the start of April, even though the weather is a bit slow to warm. Plus, it was on my To Do list. I’ve discovered the amazing “Wunderlist” app and website which has helped me be more productive and get things done.
I’m one of those people who desperately needs to write things down or else I will forget them. Especially as I have so many ideas floating around and usually put my ideas on a post-it note, which I then promptly lose! While I’ve found that most “To Do” apps just allow you to list things, the best part about this one is that it allows you to group things together into folders. So you can have a “To Do” folder, a “Shopping” folder, an “Organizing Apartment” folder, whatever you want folder!
Then you can check off completed items or even give yourself reminds about items and due dates. You can even share a list with someone else, if you’re collaborating on something! It’s completely easy and intuitive to use. Best of all, it’s completely free, is available for iPad, iPhone, Mac, Android and Windows. It syncs up between devices so you’ll always have everything you need in any location. Pretty much it’s got you covered everywhere, and as far as I can see, it may be the only “list” app you’ll ever need!
Part of my Spring initiative, since I returned from my yoga retreat, is to examine my habits and see how they’re working for me and how they’re not. Habits, as I mentioned in my last post, can be either good or bad, but the key is that once you have them, they’re kind of like our autopilot. We think so much is within our control, but really we’re creatures of habit. A program and app like Wunderlist, helps me keep a habit of looking in one central place for what I need to do next, allowing me not to have to look around for that damn post-it! I think it’s a change for the better!
