Many people make to-do lists or apps into a complicated slog. They write long blog posts or videos with detailed guides on setting up to-dos.
This isn’t that.
I find I end up not using complicated to-do lists or apps. I need to keep it simple–the simpler, the better.
I also needed a weekly to-do list that was accessible anywhere I go. I always have my phone with me, so I wanted something that would work on my phone.
And hey, it doesn’t hurt when it’s free to use!
Given those criteria, a few years ago, I set up a system using a free app called Trello. I keep it simple: Trello is available as an app on my phone (works on both Android and iPhone), at trello.com, and is also an app for both Mac and Windows.
Here’s a quick, 8-minute video of how I use Trello to create a weekly to do list:
You can also view and subscribe to my YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/c/ericabiz – more videos coming soon!
In case you’re curious: Yes, I really do use Trello in this manner pretty much every working day.
I address this in the video, but just so it’s in writing as well: I didn’t get paid to make this video, and I don’t have any sort of financial relationship with Trello. In fact, I don’t pay for Trello either–I use the free version. I made the video because I’ve seen way too many people overcomplicate to-do lists, and I would love for you to see how easy and simple a weekly to-do list can really be.
On a personal note, I’ve cleared up a significant amount of time so I can start creating more blog posts and videos. If you’d like me to answer a business question you have, or share more about how I set up my “work life”, please feel free to email me (erica at erica dot biz) or ask in the comments! I do read every email and comment.
