My aunt always had an enormous purse. As a child, I was intrigued and full of suspense; what treasures would emerge if I turned it upside down? As I was not allowed to touch her purse, it took years before I finally came to see the treasures.
What a disappointment this moment was for me; so much paper. Why was she carrying all these notes in her purse? It turned out it was her ToDo list; even then it seemed not very efficient.
This was years ago, and the “system” seemingly worked for her. Luckily, today we have a choice of many tools to help us stay organized; most of them sync between your phone, iPad, tablet and computer is a given.
I have played with a number of tools, and find that I like Toodledo the best. Here is my why:
- Inputting a new task is a breeze.
- Features, such as priorities, alarms, reminders
- Customizable tags, sub-tasks, and folders
- Select shared folders for collaboration
- Easy customization
- Syncs with mobile phone, iPad, Android, most calendars
As a Virtual Assistant, one needs to be organized and efficient. Heaven forbid I forget. Each client has her separate ToDo folder making it easy to plan my days. The tool is easy to use, simple, and effective; that’s what matters to me most. Which tool, if any, do you use to keep the ToDos of your business and yourself organized?
