How do you keep your calendar and to-do list organized? A great question for the New Year.
I am a recent graduate and am working in DC now. In school, a regular weekly planner worked fine for homework assignments but now I am looking for a better way to manage my to-do lists, action items, notes from staff meetings, and reminders. Do you have any recommendations for planners/journals to keep yourself organized at work? Thanks!
I recently started using a website and app called Monday. It lets you group tasks (blog, job, personal), create subtasks, set deadlines, and assess your progress. I really like it for organizing tasks and creating a plan of attack.
I’m still learning all of the tools, but they have multiple templates. The software can also manage projects and tasks that many people are working on.
They offer a free trial so you can see if the product is right for you. My only criticism of the software is that I wish it integrated with my calendar. I’d love to have my tasks and my appointments in one place.
Prefer a physical planner?
One of the most appealing aspects of it is that you get a new planner every month. This is great if (like me) you lose momentum in February or March and end up abandoning your planner for the rest of the year. With Silk + Sonder, if you have a bad month, you can have a fresh start the next month.
