There’s no pleasure to be had in too much on your mind.  A busy mind is a great path to stress, anxiety and overwhelm.

This is where Todoist can be your friend and trusted companion!

Years ago, I discovered David Allen’s work on Getting Things Done (GTD).  The quote below had a lasting effect for me.

After years of trial and error, trying different methods and apps for capturing and processing tasks, I discovered Todoist.  I’ve been using it ever since.

What Is Todoist?

Todoist is a quick and easy way to list your tasks, your ideas, or any kind of list you can imagine.  It’s the perfect place to capture those important thoughts on the fly, so you they are off your mind until you need them again.

One of the handy things about Todoist is how available it is.  It works on almost any device.

Let’s say you’ve just agreed to phone a friend at 7 pm on Monday.  In Todoist, you simply type “Phone [friend’s name] 7 pm Monday”.  Todoist will then send you a reminder close to that time.  It can also be synchronised with your Google Calendar.

The Dark Side Of Lists

A tool is only as good as the way it is used.  Keeping a list of what you need to remember to do, or would like to do, is a great idea. 

But, what happens when you are confronted with a huge list of tasks?  

Part of the solution is mindset.  Remember where the list came from!  You made it up!  And there is no “right or wrong” about a list, only what serves you in any given moment.  So don’t treat your lists like a demanding tyrant.  Make sure you use the lists you create, not the other way around.

Todoist does provide many ways to help us combat a daunting list.

 

So, create that clear mind.  Capture all those important things in a reliable place and make your lists work for you!

Todoist is free to use.  The even better news is you can try Todoist with all the premium features, free for 2 months! Just click on the button below.
