To Do Lists

Good morning! A brand new week and a fresh to-do list.

morning-<span class=

Are you a lists person? If yes, do you like writing them on paper or typing them on a digital device? I personally like a mix of both. For the day’s to-do’s I like writing things out in my Kate Spade planner {seen above} -it appeals to my tactile sense :) For long term to-do’s I use the To Do List gadget on iGoogle and use multiple lists to separate out tasks by category. I love it’s simplicity and ease of use, and have been using it for a while now. The only con for me is not being able to access it easily from my smartphone.

I’m currently trying out Springpad {which has an accompanying android and iphone app} to see if that might be a better alternative. So far, I like that I can create different notebooks (for separating things into categories: Personal, Business, etc.) and that I can access it from both my computer and through the phone app. What I don’t like though is that I can’t {or at least haven’t figured out how to} sort tasks by high, medium or low priority. Have you tried it? What’s your preferred method of managing your lists?


P.S. for tips on how to write a better to-do list, check out this post which reminds us not to confuse goals with tasks.

    I am borderline OCD. I take my list making very seriously haha! Can't wait to check out the links you have posted, I have yet to try either of them.
    I use mostly the 'stickies' on my macbook, which honestly i love.
    Nothing beats writing by hand though, I have notebooks which i take with me everywhere to make lists and jot down ideas or inspirations

    I'm extremely organized so I make many lists. So far I've only used paper, even though I love technology.

    I desperately need my planner which contains my to-do list or I'll never get anything done. My memory (or lack thereof) makes it impossible for me to get by without writing my tasks down. It's definitely made me organized but so overly dependent on my planner. I couldn't find my planner for a week once and it was such a mess of a week!
