I LOVE to write to do lists. You might call it an obsession. I may spend more time writing a task than it would just take to accomplish it. There is something about crossing things off the list and seeing what I have completed each day that fuels me. I must confess that sometimes I write things I have already done just to cross them off- lame, I know. In our home, my husband will come across my lists on post its, backs of bills, and even jotted down in my kids' journals. What can I say, I like making lists.
There are unlimited options when it comes to list makers: Wunderlist, To Do, Remember the Milk, Producteev, Trello, Evernote, and good old fashioned pen and paper (just to name a few)--- and people are passionate and opinionated about their to do lists.
For the last four or five years I have used Google tasks. My friend Michelle sold me on it, and I have found it to be very helpful and easy to navigate. Google Tasks works for me mostly because I use Google Calendar and keep my browser open in the background at all times. I also like that it syncs to my phone through an app called GoTasks, and I can categorize different lists for assistant, personal work, and home. (I used to have a groceries category, but since the Walmart grocery pickup app, this category is no longer needed-- yes, I love Walmart grocery pick up, but that's a different post). Since Google Tasks syncs to my phone, when I check it off in one place it checks off in the other--- and I LOVE checking off tasks.
I definitely find it to be more phone user friendly--- the app allows me to sort in the order I want, set alarms at specific times to remind me, repeat tasks that are recurring, and I can view ALL my lists at the same time. Through the browser it only sorts alphabetically, can only set a due date (not time), and views only one list at a time.
I have heard there are some amazing other options out there, like Trello that works great for group lists or Producteev where I can create subcategories. Honestly, I haven't made a lot of time to explore all the options out there... I will add that to my to do list. Check.
