Wunder-ful

wunderlist review

I am really bad at project management. There, I said it! When I was in school, I used to carry around a notebook (a Moleskine, of course) and write down everything I needed to remember in that notebook. It worked pretty well, but the system has broken down now that I’m out in the real world. I tried this project management system, but it didn’t work for me. I needed something simple that allowed me to look at everything I need to do at a glance, but also allowed me to break my projects down a little.

When I was reading DesignLoveFest (a blog that I love, by the way) Bri mentioned that she used Wunderlist. It is a free app, so I figured it was worth a shot.

It has changed. My. Life.

The beauty of Wunderlist is its simplicity. You type in a to-do, you hit return, and that’s it. You can add a date it needs to be completed by, you can put your to-dos in different folders, and you can even share the folders, but that’s about all you can do. The buttons at the bottom let you see your to-dos based on their due dates, which is incredibly helpful for me. I’ve only been using it for a couple weeks, but I already feel like I’m so much more on top of what I have to do. I can schedule something to work on in the next week, and then forget about it until then. I get a lot of satisfaction from clicking the check box, and I love the peace of mind that comes from having an app to just brain-dump all of the things I know I have to get done.

So, that’s what’s been rocking my world lately. You should check it out! What do you use for project or time management? I am always looking for new stuff to help keep me organized.
