Although I’ve tried several apps for keeping to-do lists, I actually prefer the good ol’ fashioned pen-and-paper kind. I find it immensely motivating and satisfying to cross items off my list as they are completed, then wad that paper up and dunk it in the trash bin when I’m finished – woo-hoo!
I also find that a list can function as a step-by-step guide for organizing my thoughts on days that I’m overwhelmed. Instead of focusing on the big project, I can focus on the next item on the list.
For those lists that I need to keep with me, I use the “memo” app that came with my phone. Unlike some of the apps I’ve tried from the Play Store, it hasn’t crashed, and it works regardless of where I am (and regardless of whether or not I have service).
I’m a pretty simple girl, so most of my projects can easily be tracked either on a paper sticky-note, or on the memo app. However, if I had a very large project to complete, I’m pretty sure I would try one of the free templates I found today on a site called checklist.com. Has anyone used that, or do you have an app you like to use? Let me know in the comments!
