12 Lists That Help You Get Things Done
At the center of just about every personal productivity system are lists – GTD has it’s context lists, Pomodoro has it’s action inventory and daily to-do lists, todoodlist has, well, the todoodlist, and so on. But there are a lot of different kinds of lists besides your task or to-do list that can help you be more productive. Lists in general are powerful tools – open-ended, constantly growing, and effective at extending our memories past the 7 or so things we can keep on our mind at any given time. Some of the lists that can make you more productive or otherwise make life easier include: Task lists: Naturally, the most obvious is the task list, a simple list of things you have to do.
