I have to confess, that I am an avid To Do Lister. Why? Because without writing every task down that I need to get done, I won't get anything done. Strangely, it's those who have the most trouble doing things in life who are the ones who need to do extra steps in getting things accomplished.
I have downloaded many different applications on my iPhone for the purposes of task organization, and Wunderlist by far is the best app that I have come across so far. Now I will never give up my classic pen to paper methods, it's just that I go through so much paper that it gets a bit insane. I write so much that I will use up every piece of computer paper in the house, every notebook will be filled, every index card, post it note, etc...
Anyways, this app was a miracle for me. I love that my information transfers instantly from computer to phone. It is beautifully designed. You can invite other people to be a part of the list. You can add notes to the lists and reminders that go off on your phone. I love the sound it makes when you complete a task. I always feel so accomplished as it keeps me always moving forward.
I just recently discovered more information regarding the creation of public lists. It's a feature I think I would like to try out possibly in conjunction with my blog. When I am not creating to do lists for the purposes of productivity, I love making lists organizing thoughts, likes, dislikes, favorites and so on. Even in my every day life, I tend to group similar things together all around the house.
It puts my mind at ease and makes me happy. This is the same for pretty much anything. So I think I will publish a public list to share on my blog/social media. It will either be a list of movies, products, maybe even a comedic list of pet peeves. I really shouldn't be this excited...but I am. They talk about public lists here in this video...
Sometimes I find myself drifting off into random thoughts forgetting what I was doing and whenever that happens I just go to my Wunderlist app and figure out what I need to do. I have an ever evolving list for groceries, a general daily to do list, a future goals list, a blog to do, and I even have an aspects of my dream life list.
Anything I can think of is in list form and neatly organized amazingly on this app. I love it love it love it. You can email a list, print a list, change up your backgrounds. They offer a lot of little things you can do within the app and even more with the version that you can upgrade to. I love the user-friendliness of Wunderlist. It just makes me genuinely happy thinking about it. It's like I know there is order to my chaos, and order gives me peace.
