Evolving ways of doing and listing down tasks and priorities

Back in the day, the only way I knew to organise my activities was having a to-do list. Next thing you know, I had lists of lists and an overwhelming amount of sticky notes. It was good but it wasn’t helping me focus and prioritise in a calm and well-regulated manner.

Technology and apps then became available, but all were list-based too. Asana, Trello, Slack, Monday, Flow, and many more apps came to help you with to-do lists and bring in team members to help with each project, add channels, share files, communicate, and help with task progression. These are good apps, but can still be a little bit of overwhelm.
