Need For A ‘Life’ Organizer

This is going to be a short post. The reason for this post being, the fact that most of us don’t follow a To-Do list in our day-to-day life. You may argue that we always have it in our mind, but we are bound to forget things. How often does this happen that we regret doing some task, something as small as wishing someone on their anniversary? Or remembering to buy a pen just before heading towards your classes or a meeting at work? How often? If you give it a thought, it happens at-least once a day, that we tend to miss something silly, and at-least once a week that we tend to miss something important.

Now, I won’t say that you will not miss even a single task by using a To-Do list. After all it’s a list that we maintain manually, we are bound to forget to add an entry of the said task to the list. We are bound to not check the to-do list and hence miss the task scheduled for a particular time. But it will surely help you reduce the number of missed tasks. And with time the efficiency is going to get better, as you get used to using it on a daily basis.

With smart-phones, laptops, mobile web, internet access anywhere we go, it’s very easy to Sync your tasks and let them be with you wherever you go.  There are many To-Do List services that offers Sync across all the possible sections. If you a Lazy person and thinking “Who would take the pain to write down the task somewhere and then keep a note of it?” , there are services that don’t let you feel so, especially once you start seeing the fruits of this service.

The real use of a To-Do List is here, when you look at some aspects that To-Do Lists don’t mostly mention in their features List. It’s Self Improvement. It’s Self Motivation.

When you see the list in front of you, check mark all the tasks you do as and when you finish, you do get the feel good factor.  That feel good factor motivates you to complete your next task faster, as soon as possible. Eventually helping you be more focused on organizing, and then completing your tasks. hence, don’t just look at it as a List of all tasks, it’s a List that will help you organize your Life.

I will come up with a small review on the To-Do list that I use. Also if possible a comparison of a few other services too.

    Planning, Organizing and Implementation are the keys to a successful management, whether it be of an organization or self. To do all these tasks successfully and within the time limit, we need to have a “to-do list”. In today’s life we tend to get involved in multi-tasking but many times we do miss out on several things that are important.

    You’ve beautifully highlighted the importance of this simple yet very powerful tool. With the help of modern gadgets and smart phones, it is now easy not only to actually have a to-do list but also follow it. I loved the way you brought the simple, minute yet a very significant point into our perspective. Kudos! 🙂

    Abbe “Post- it’s” are those tiny strips of paper, with adhesive. You can just scribble the task to be done on them, and paste it on your desk.

      Oh! haan… There are apps for Post-its too on Android. 😛
      But, better is to use a to-do list na. It keeps history, makes organizing stuff easier. Isn’t it?
