Todoist task manager

Blog

I’ve tried using a digital task manager in the past, but gave up.

My list of to-dos was unorganized and became unmanageable.

For the last five years, I’ve used a notebook, writing a new task list each day, by hand.

I do like the physicality of the paper, but I often lose track of longer-term action items.

On Saturday, I set up a Todoist account, and it feels like a massive weight has been taken off my shoulders.

The key has been organizing tasks into a system of projects and areas, per Tiago Forte’s PARA method.

Todoist is a delight to use.  Syncs across all devices, of course. Easily add a task from email. Move projects up and down to prioritize.

Note: Tiago Forte uses the task manager Things, but that tool is not available for the PC.
