Pimp Your Work

Howdy, readers! Here’s our discussion for the week:

What is your to-do list strategy?  Do you use digital (web apps, software) or analog (paper, whiteboard) tools? If so, what kind? Is it just for work tasks or do you list personal tasks? Do you even use a to-do list at all?

Click here to share your answers.

    Much to my mother’s chagrin, I’ve always been kind of anti-list and anti-organization. I can probably count the number of times I’ve made a shopping list.

    I generally just approach my work day with one or two major things I want to get done, and I make sure I do them. Then I work on other littler projects or call it a day.

    I’m highly suspect of long to-do lists, as I equate them with the “be busy” mentality instead of “be productive” mentality. When I was in the army, we always had to look busy… Maybe once a week we actually did something productive. I suspect the corporate world is worse. :P

    We use Joint Contact for all of our to-do lists and project notes. In addition of tracking basic tasks, Joint Contact supports a module called “Conversations” that can be used to track and share project notes with small groups or an entire team.

    WebWorkerDaily also recently had a chance to do a review on Joint Contact.
