To-do lists have been on my mind a lot recently.
Recently, I got engaged, and in doing so another need for a way to keep track of to-dos was born. Another methodology was explored. Another level of list anxiety was added on.
To help combat and gain control over this list anxiety (list-iety perhaps?) I thought it would be helpful to make a mess and list out…wait for it….my lists and the various methods I use to manage each of them. What am I hoping to achieve in doing so? Maybe identify some overlap, gain clarity and hopefully in the end slim down the amount of to-do lists.
So let’s begin.
To-do lists and the methods I manage them with:
As I look back on that list I begin to see that it’s mainly around work items that consistency becomes a problem. However, I also am beginning to realize that maybe this is actually more of a problem of workflow. Cue photo of business person drawing diagrams with a marker on glass.
So maybe drawing out my to-do workflow is the next step.
