I started using Todoist back in May. I mentioned it here and there in some videos I made for Pocketnow. Not long after, I became a huge fan of the app and service. I actually started to notice increased productivity, a feeling of more control and accomplishment, and I eventually upgraded to Todoist Premium so I could get more out of the apps.
Ever since creating my own YouTube channel, I’ve received multiple requests for a video on how I use Todoist in the day to day.
About two months ago, I took the time to actually setup Todoist, rather than just firing from the hip each day. And a few weeks ago, I started reading David Allen’s Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity. I still haven’t finished the book, but I have started implementing some of the GTD methodology. I add any and all tasks, big or small, personal or work-related, and I categorize everything in an organized set of projects. I have multiple levels of sub-tasks and sub-projects. Every task has its place, is tagged, and has a priority level. I use many of the premium features, the Android, iOS, and Mac apps, the Gmail extension, and I even integrated Todoist with IFTTT the very day the channel was activated.
I wouldn’t say I’m a pro just yet, but I have reached Master level in Todoist Karma. I’m learning new ways to use Todoist all the time, and even while making this video, I noticed some things I might want to change or add.
So check out the video below and tell me what you do the same or differently in the comments below!
