We spend a precious amount of time each day thinking about what to do, when to do it, and how. Successful men like Steve Jobs wore the same outfits everyday so they could avoid this.
Instead of having to expend brain power on such minuscule details of life men like Steve Jobs could instead focus on their work by having their routines pre-planned to the point of automation. You should do the same.
If you’re tired of always forgetting work that has to be done, and are generally bad with ingraining good habits you need to bring Wunderlist into your life.
I first heard about the Wunderlist app after reading Will Freemen’s book How to Get Organized. In the book he raves about the app.
I ignored this the first time I read the book, but the second time through I made sure to add it and follow the advice he lays out. And boy has it made my life easier and more productive.
What is Wunderlist?
(Here’s a sample of what the interface looks like)
Wunderlist is a powerful to-do-list app. You can create daily, weekly, monthly etc. tasks that need to be done. When they come due, they’ll show up on ‘Today’s’ list of tasks.
This is a key point in How to Get Organized, as Will highlights the fact that you’ve essentially put your life on auto-pilot and don’t have to think about what needs to get done today when it’s right in front of you!
No more writing your chores on a scrap of paper. Instead, Wunderlist can be added to your phone or computer, so any time you’re at a screen you can see what needs to get done.
Organizing Routines, Tasks and Goals
Another reason I love Wunderlist is because you can create sub-folders of tasks. For example, if you have a big project you’re working on, you can add multiple tasks to a folder and check the boxes off as you go. This makes it easy to visualize how far along you are in your project. You can also create ‘sub-tasks’ as another option.
Also, if you have big goals in life or a mission you’re chasing, Wunderlist allows you to store all these in one place. It’s helpful when reviewing your progress that you can easily check these out.
But I’ll spare you the details. Instead, I suggest you check out How to Get Organized as Will shows you how to use Wunderlist and everything else you need to do to make the most of this app. Or read my review first.
You can start by getting Wunderlist here–for free. It’s fairly intuitive, so try messing around with it at first, then refer to the book.
Let me know what you think of this awesome app!
