Do you have a To-Do-List?
Most people have a diary to schedule their tasks that they have to complete on a certain day or time. In that case they have a To-Do-List that helps them keep things organized and stay on track. Designers are usually very organized when it comes to clients and meetings and being on time, well we are. The main reason I’m asking the question, “Do you have a To-Do-List?” Is that I want to find out how other designers and people manage their activities and schedules on a day to day basis to get everything done.
Everyone has a different way to go about doing things and getting them done on time, I have been busy reading “Making Ideas Happen” by Scott Belsky for the last few days and I can truly say it has changed the way I look upon day to day tasks here at the Agency. Our usual scheduling methods work like this: We have a white board in the office which has the projects listed on. Underneath each project we have the activities listed that have to be completed for that certain project. We then also keep a diary that has all our appointments and meetings listed within the dates and the exact times. I also use Mini Task on my dashboard if there is really important things to remember for my personal life.
So tell us, Do you have a To-Do-List and how do you manage yours?
