How do YOU organize your To Do List?

I saw this picture and I got the biggest chuckle. It’s exactly how my brain works. I like to see everything I need to do at once in bright beautiful colors all over the place. If it is in a notebook, for me, information is lost. Move one Post-It Note and I WILL KNOW – no joke!

Interesting how our individual brains work/process information.

I’ve been reading about Evernote, but there is a monthly charge – don’t want that. Still need Netflix. Hum…

Any other ideas?

  1. I have multiple lists. There is a master with everything imaginable. This where I record stray thoughts, wishes, and dreams of things I want to do. Then I have notebooks specific to certain areas, work, personal, writing, house, yard, etc. Periodically, I move items from the master list to the area lists. Every quarter when I plot my goals for the next 3 months I pull things from the area notebooks into my 90 day plan. They are then integrated into my monthly/weekly/daily planners. I know it sounds complicated, but it means I don’t have to look or worry about things I’m not currently working on. 😋😎

    1. You are HIRED! You are an absolute dynamo! I have some things in notebooks, but I get bored with having to look in different places for information. I use the Notes on my Iphone A LOT. I like it, BUT I can’t organize it. So… I will think your ideas. We can be more creative when we are organized.

      1. Hahaha. Not sure about brilliant. The master list is a mess. It helps that there is a pocket in the back. There are notes on receipts, napkins, email printouts, you name it. I try to at least copy them over into the notebook so I can throw some of the icky stuff away. When I complete something I highlight it so I know its done. Then when a page is mostly done, I usually rip it out of the notebook and transfer the undone items to another page. I hope this gives you some ideas on what might work for you. 👍

      2. Yes… this gives me some great ideas. Like you, I can have thoughts written on different things. Now, I need to organize them better. I think I should take the weekend and do that. Isn’t it supposed to snow again… Perfect time to make a hot chocolate and get down to business!

    1. I don’t use Google Docs. Do you mean like an Excel sheet? I hadn’t thought about that, I can add different tabs in Excel for various topics. That’s a good idea. Thanks… LOL, sometimes the easiest ideas are right at our fingertips.


  2. I have two to-do lists — one that is for the next week to month and another for today and tomorrow. I like to be sure I have the chance to at least cross a couple of things off each day, even if they are sometimes mundane tasks. Also, I make these lists on colorful paper like one I bought with sloths on it that says Life Is Easy. An inexpensive but makes-me-smile purchase.

      1. It’s all trial and error until you find the right system. And knowing that you have to adapt. My needs are different now, and will change again post pandemic

  3. I keep everything in my head….my life isn’t that complicated anymore. I do have a bulletin board where I will pin up appointment cards, and I use one of those free Hallmark purse size calendars for the month at a glance.
