As I age, I feel a need to get every aspect of my life organized. It is funny because when I was in high school, college, and even a little after college, I was a mess! Now, my desk, my bills, my coupons, my nightstand, everything needs to be in order for my mind to be at ease. Sometimes, I can’t even leave school until my classroom is organized. That way, when I walk in the next morning there isn’t a mess. I’m sure many people are like this.
Just recently, I’ve been making lists for everything. I’ve be creating little checklists and as I check things off, a sense of accomplishment comes my way. Some days the lists are small and easy to finish. Love those days!! I generally keep these post-it checklists on my notebook for school so they stare me in the face throughout the day. I can’t avoid them.
I’ve come across some websites that help me in my organization:
- jott – This site was great until they started making you pay. Jott allowed you to dial their number and add to your list on the go.
- Remember the Milk – RTM lets you create multiple lists, set priorities for tasks, due dates, repetitions, and much more. There is a pro version you can upgrade to, but I don’t think it is necessary. You can even link it to your twitter account!!
- Dial2Do – As an alternative to jott, dial2do allows you to use your cell phone to do many things. You can record reminders, write emails, text message…the list goes on. Everything is voice to text, so speak clearly. You can also update your twitter account and your remember the milk tasks.
