When I was a kid, I read a book called The Listmaker. It’s about a young girl who uses lists to organise and make sense of her life. At the time, I didn’t read any more into it besides the fact that this was an odd hobby for a pre-teen girl to spend so much time on. Now, although I don’t remember the book that well, I do see much more significance in the humble list — especially after researching where they come from and why we make lists.
Most to-do lists are organised by either priority or time. That’s fine, but it doesn’t work for everyone, especially on those days when you’re a bit under the weather. For those times, 99U suggests trying something a little different and organising your to-dos by the amount of energy it takes to complete an item.
Allthings is a webapp that makes it easier to organise your to-dos, add files and links you may need to refer to, and work with other people when you need to.
