One of the biggest advantages to using a software-based approach to manage your to do checklist is that you can update it easily. For example, instead of scratching off tasks and rewriting the list every day, software allows you to move and prioritize tasks quickly.
To-Do Lists can help you get, and stay, on top of important projects and piles of tasks or decisions. For instance, imagine you’re heading a team that’s working on a project. There are so many tasks to do, and so many people doing them, that staying on top of it all seems overwhelming.
All of us think, plan and work differently. A program that works well for a colleague might not work well for you simply because you learn and think in your own way. This is why it’s useful to research and try several different ways of compiling your checklist before deciding on a single system.
Do you often feel overwhelmed by the amount of work you have to do, or do you find yourself missing deadlines? Or do you sometimes just forget to do something important, so that people have to chase you to get work done? All of these are symptoms of not keeping a proper "To-Do List."
