The Teux Deux app is about the easiest out there to use. It gives you an easy to read visual representation of your week. You can also add, edit and move tasks with a simple click of your mouse.
Below the weekly to-do list are a series of pinned lists that you can customize. This area is great for keeping track of a reading list, future ideas, or tasks that get pushed out and eventually removed due to being a low priority or not necessary. I like to keep a list of books I want to read, movies to watch, and a list of products I might want to purchase and review.
Keeping your to-do list organized and close by allows you to stay focused on the tasks at hand.
This productivity app is free for 30 days, but after that, it’s about $2 a month when you pay annually. For simplicity and ease of use, Teux Deux punches way above its price point.
Another to-do list tip is to write them out in the form of an action. This is a minor mental hack, but it works. So instead of having a task that just says something like “Youtube Video,” say “Film and edit Youtube video.” When written more specifically, it will help to motivate you to take that action.
Try to limit your to-do list to only the 3 to 5 most important things that need to be done. Any more than that, and you’ll start to lose focus and productivity.
