Ever feel like your day is out of control? This blog article is about organizing your days at home, with ideas for tools to help keep you on track and questions you’ll want to answer before buying or using the free tools.
Questions to Answer before You Choose Your Product
*Are you comfortable with software and apps, more so than paper? Are you often on your device?
*What’s important to keep track of?;
*Where do you think you get bogged down?;
*Who else needs to see the calendar or to do’s (and what technology do they use if you think you’ll need to synchronize);
*How mobile do you need to be;
*What technology do you prefer – type, size of device – or do you prefer paper;
*What “view” is most useful to you (daily, weekly, monthly)?;
*How easy does the software look; pricing; setup time; intuitive?
*Can you sync up or otherwise backup all this wonderful data you’re about to put into your tool? Comfortable with that?
A tool can be useful because you get a place to start, a method to keep track, a structure.
A tool can work against you, in a sense, if you don’t know what you want it to do, or if you spend more time setting it up and reorganizing items instead of doing them.
A balance, as with so much, is important.
If you’re not sure what you want, but you know you’re a software person, then take a look at each tool. They are quite different looking even though they do similar things; by reviewing each one for a few minutes, you may figure out what you like or don’t, narrowing down your choice.
