We are all busy! I work a full time job along with my blog and freelancing. That being said, it never fails that when I’m in the thick of it at my day job I have amazing ideas or important thoughts pop up in reference to my blog.
Sometimes I could sit there for two hours and maybe crank out the first draft of one blog post but I’ll be working on Google Adwords for a client and have 3 blog post ideas and remember 2 things I wanted to add on the blog.
It can be a little frustrating when you have so many balls in the air if you don’t have a system to keep things in place. In came Todoist.
My friend Jenn from HomebyJenn.com introduced me to it a while back when we were on a Google Hangout chat. I had never heard of it but in the past month it has totally changed how I organize my to-do list. I’m a huge fan of to-do lists, nothing calms me down when I go into task overload like then a clean list of what all needs to get done (I know talk nerdy to me lol).
What is Todoist?
Todoist is a online to-do app.
4 Reasons I Love Todoist
This is so easy. I’ve attempted to use other apps or scheduling platforms and I just felt like they made things more difficult than they should have. The whole point of a to-do list app is to organize things and make things simpler. That is not the case with a lot of them.
It takes no time at all to input new tasks or mark them complete on todoist.
I can access it from anywhere with
Not only can I access it from my my laptop but there is an app for it on iOS and Android. I can only speak for the android version but I love that the app looks the same on mobile as it does on desktop. There is seriously no learning curve going from one device to the other. I’ve found a lot of websites tend to lose their flow when it comes to the app but Todoist doesn’t let you down. I can add a task when I’m at work on my computer and know it will sync perfectly to my phone.
It helps me prioritize things
For such a clean and self proclaimed distraction free design it allows you to be as detailed as you want in your tasks. You can add tasks to projects, add due dates, set priority filters and create recurring tasks. On the premium version you can add notes to your tasks which I love to use for putting in links for later reference.
It keeps me up to date
If you use the calendar on your phone or computer chances are one a reminder pops up it’s one and done. Todoist keeps incomplete tasks on your to-do list and you get a daily reminder each morning telling you how many tasks you have and how many you might have over-due. This way if you don’t get around to every task you won’t forget to do it the next day.
At only $28.99 a year it is a real steal! That comes down to less than $3.00 a month! For that low of a price why would you not give it a try? There is a free version but the premium is worth the price. You can sign up for it here.
