As I’ve mentioned before, I use Todoist to keep track of my personal to-do list. This is the first to-do manager I’ve been able to stick with, and I’ve been using it daily for well over 2 years now. In that two year period I’ve reorganised it a bit, but for the most part I’ve been able to keep to the main structure I initially created when setting it up the first time.
I try to keep my projects organised in main projects, with sub-projects as needed. All items I add should fall into one of these high-level projects.
I have the following main projects defined.
Work Private VMUG vNinja
Most, of not all of these are self-explanatory. Anything Work related goes into Work, and anything Private naturally goes into Private. Most of these have sub-projects as well, like Work which has sub-projects for my employer, and sub-projects for each of my clients.
In addition to Projects, Todoist also features Labels than you can apply to a task, regardless of which project it is (thing of this as tags).
My current list of labels are:
@Waiting—Anything that I’m currently waiting for someone else to to something
