Every day, before getting into work, I always take 5-10 minutes to plan my day. That involves listing all the tasks that I want to get done in:
- The current sprint at Kudos
- Personal errands
- Home tasks
- Any hobby (music, reading, podcasts...)
- Any other thing that is on my mind
And here it's how I do it!
I have to say that I am a fan of Linux and especially a big fan of ElementaryOS. It looks incredibly beautiful and it is so easy to use that I don't feel like using any other OS these days.
And by using ElementaryOS in my day-to-day work I came across a task manager called Planner.
Here are some features that I find very very useful:
- Put each task into its project (Work, Personal, Home)
- Set subtasks to each task
- Create recurring tasks
- Set deadlines
- Cloud Sync if I need to access it from my phone (Todoist)
- Most important: List all the tasks that are due to Today 🎉️ 🚀️
Simple as that: Before starting my day I open "Planner" and write down everything that I need to get done by the end of the day.
As the tasks get done I check them off the list and if something does not get finished I just reschedule it for the next day. That will be the first I will see in the morning when opening my computer.
Before starting your day, try taking some time to write down what you need to get done. And it doesn't matter if you are using ElementaryOS, Planner or any other tool. Just write it down because once you do it you feel like you just committed to something.
If you don't use ElementaryOS or Planner here are some tools to achieve the same effect:
