I've tried dozens of ways to track my to-dos, including Dropbox Paper, iPhone Reminders, Clear for iOS, Trello, and a long etcetera. None of them seem to work for me in the long run. I'm too good at cramming my lists with items.
My latest attempt is a simple running list in a tiny notebook on the table.
I write down the tasks I want to complete today (maybe tomorrow) and strike through individual action items as I do them. When I finish the majority of to-dos in the list, I scrap the page and transfer the remaining to-dos to the next page.
How do you track your to-dos?
Even though my boards end up having way too many cards, I'm a happy Notion user. I can create Kanban boards and visualize their data with multiple view types and filters, which converts my board into a database I can browse in many different ways. However, I still prefer writing down urgent items outside of this board to ensure they don't slip by. ↩
