THE BEST TOOL FOR BUSINESS FORGETFULNESS
Do you ever feel like you have a never ending of things you must do in your business? Does it feel familiar to think of something which needs doing whilst you’re out shopping only to forget all about it for another 76 hours when you get home?hrough the process be patient and know it will happen.
This used to always be me. With a to-do list which felt never ending but with half of my most important tasks missed off.
Things changed for me when I discovered Asana.
Asana is an online platform (they have an app too) which you can use with a team for project management. However, I use it slightly differently and use it to keep a track of jobs which need doing in the future.
Asana allows you to create tasks and add a date next to them. If you know next week you need to plan your Instagram posts for the next month then you can add it as a task, pop a due date next to it and then forget about it until the date arrives.
Of course, like everything it only works if you then check Asana on a regular basis to know what needs doing. At the start of each week, I check in to Asana see what tasks I have for the week and then transfer them to my weekly to-do list. Asana also sends you emails about the tasks you have outstanding which can be helpful too.
Once the task is done I tick it off on Asana and if it’s a recurring task such as your monthly accounts, once it’s ticked it will reschedule you a new task in a months time, meaning you’ll never forget again!
Finding simple ways to be more organised for your business really can save you so much time and energy. When something is out of your head until it needs doing it allows you to focus on the things you need to be doing today.
