Writing often, writing much – another try

It’s been a very long time since I’ve posted ‘fur realz’. I’ve got a wackydoo new ‘system’ – as often lurks behind spurts of motivation – that I’m trying. One of the daily goals is to write very short blog posts to get back in the habit of writing often, writing much.

Understanding audience and making posts relevant to readers certainly does not make the process easier – doubts creep in, insidious as air. ‘What have I got to say that anyone will find interesting?’ But I press on. 200-ish words is the aim. Perhaps I can, in the last half, share with you the combination of tools I use to manage my time.

To-do lists? My favourite is Todoist (and no, that’s not a spelling mistake). I love this one – click and drag, keyboard shortcuts, printable lists, again with the simple/elegant layout. Love it.

The only problem is… actually doing the things on the list, right? As always! For this I’m trying Habit RPG. I will update on my progress on that soon.

And lastly, keeping track of what I do work on: I work in a consultancy – so time tracking to individual projects is essential. Toggl gets me there. Simple, simple, elegant interface. Reports I can download anytime I want, or weekly to do my timesheet. Mobile app, web-based or offline software.

And now I can check off one more thing for the day!
