Have you ever been the person to feel like there is just not enough time in the days to get everything done? Have you ever thought that there’s not enough room in that brain of yours to remember everything you have to do in the world? Did you ever think it should be easier to organize yourself and your regular activities?

Well, if you’re the type to go through Post It notes like a baby goes through diapers, you’ve come to the right place. Here, you’ll learn tips and tricks on how to make your life more organized. And, you’ll even learn the right info to take your organization skills and To-Do lists digital.

Depending on what you need to be done, understanding how to build an effective to-do can be very important.

Becoming Digital

The very first step in organizing yourself is to find the right niche for you. With all the technological advances now out there, arranging good To-Do lists is easy as can be. All you have to do is become digital.

Becoming digital is a new phrase on the rise. It means to allow technology into your life for endless benefits. Because you want to know and understand how to organize your situations on a regular basis better, becoming digital means converting to technology instead of a using a paper and pen to keep track of activities.

What’s the best way to become digital today?

Use applications!

  1. Things.
  2. Trello.

  4. CoOrganiz.
  5. Reminders.
  6. Carrot.

Each will be discussed in further detail later on. But, for now, check out a Daily to-do list app, it’s like homework from school all over again!

Oh, The Applications

There are so many of them! So, pick an app that makes you feel comfortable, and go with it.

Things

This application works well for those of you that are extremely busy and can’t seem to catch up with any situation. Not only is it super easy to run and operate (you don’t even need a manual), but it also provides neat To-Do lists. Another benefit of this app is that it constantly loads and works fast, so you don’t have to worry about waiting forever to see what’s next on your schedule of things to accomplish. This application is available for iOS and OS X.

Trello

This application is for those of you that use different colored sticky notes to remember different things. In other words, it’s for those of you that work well with visual reminders. This app not only helps with the visuals, but it also adopts the Post-It note mechanism. What that means is, this program is filled with cards and boards to optimize your organization. You can add any type of visual reminder in these cards and boards, too. Such add-ons can range from pictures to files and codes to labels. This application is available for iOS and Android.

Todoist

This To-Do application is special. It allows users to stay on top of everything that needs to be done. And, it helps users access the lists at any point and time. How do they do this, you must be wondering? Well, unlike other applications, this application has the capabilities to be downloaded for iOS and Android, along with the web and any other browser extension. This program really takes the phrase, “any place, any time,” to another level. And, with this app, you can integrate other apps such as G-mail, Outlook, and Dropbox.

CoOrganiz

Whether it’s a day by day to-do app, listicle builders, party planners, or any other tasks that need to get done, this small but powerful mobile app is loaded down with feature-rich applications that make organizing simple. From notifications to shareable calendars, there is no getting around the simplicity of this intriguingly strong digital planner to organize and plan your lists the right way.

Reminders

This application is the most common app used for iOS users. It primarily focuses on keeping track of tasks and reminders (hence the name of the program). This program offers all the standards that every other To-Do app offers. Another reason so many people enjoy using this app is that it’s already there! No download is necessary. However, it is specific to iPhones, iPads, and iPods.

Carrot

This lovely application prohibits procrastinators from putting things off. So, if you think you can get away with not completing certain tasks, think again. This app will haunt you until you do what you need to do. But, as an added bonus, the program will also reward you if you accomplish all of your goals. The rewards will only be known if you download the application, though. This application is available for iOS and Android.

There are several other programs out there, but these are among some of the best and notable.

Organizing To-Do Lists

Though the applications have step-by-step instructions for you to use and organize your To-Do lists in a neat and easy way, there are also ways that you can organize your activities on your own.

Check out every app listed above, research some more if you’d like, and then look into these options in each program:

  1. Planner
  2. Priorities
  3. Schedule

Options

Being good a planner isn’t easy. In fact, having the best to-do task organization is something that you need to work toward.

As mentioned above, each application has options to arrange yourself in an orderly fashion. Each is as follows:

Planner

Most applications have this feature. A planner allows the convenience of a calendar along with an area to take notes about certain activities and events. It typically does what it claims to do: It plans. Instead of having the inconvenience of a little square in a calendar to fill all the necessary details, a planner gives the luxurious opportunity to gain space where it is needed to jot down every last word you need to be there. And, now that it’s digitally in most applications, it becomes even more accessible to its users.

Priorities

With all of these applications, the one thing that most users feel strongly about is the opportunity to prioritize commitments. Most programs allow for its users to state which activities and/or events need to be done or attended first. For example, the most necessary tasks may have an exclamation point near it, maybe at the top of the chart of things to do, or may have a constant reminder on your phone or computer to make sure you follow through with it.

Schedule

Also, with these applications, users are able to create a schedule to follow. This can also be looked at as an in-depth, or zoomed in, calendar. Each application typically has the option to schedule in what needs to be done and when it needs to be done. After it is completed, success score or check marks may be provided on the side of each task.

So, you see! There are so many good things that come along with downloading a To-Do application.

Some Extras

You must be thinking this is all so great. Well, there’s more to add to all the great benefits of learning and downloading any of these apps.

With these apps, you can have more downtime for yourself to relax, go out and grab dinner, enjoy a nice bottle of wine, etc. Once you get in the hang of things and start maintaining and keeping up with the applications, it’ll be as if you couldn’t imagine life without it. Not only that, but you can also schedule downtime for yourself. Anything’s possible.

Another perk of these programs is you can estimate time. What that tends to mean is you can estimate each activity or task that has to be done at a given time. This allows for ample time usage and downtime afterward.

The last perk that emphasizes how good these applications are is that they allow you to focus on one thing at a time. The task at hand typically is at the top of the page, and once it is completed, it goes away into the category labeled as completed or finished. Or, the app may only allow you to view one task at a time, prioritizing your focus.

All of these extra options are a delight to have around!

Results

As there are some people out there that do not need a To-Do app to survive, there are still people out there that could benefit from learning and using it in particular situations.

What’s the first situation that comes to mind? What’s the first situation you may need some extra help with handling?

A party.

Do you remember when organizing a party would drive you insane? Not every event is planned the same and sometimes getting a little help on how to organize a party by using a pocket-friendly digital device, is not always a bad thing. Literally, your mental health was not in good shape during this time. Well, those times are over because these applications are here to help! This is a great way to put such a To-Do app to good use, even if you don’t use such a program on a regular basis.
