There’s one thing that almost everyone needs to do, it’s getting more organized. Many people, including ourselves, are messy by nature, and getting organized isn’t a simple task, which is why for years we’ve been using an easy way of managing most of the important things that we need to get done with a simple open text file. Here’s how you can do it too.
There are many different ways of managing your tasks and lists, but somehow nothing beats the overall simplicity of using a simple text file to get this done. On a Mac, you can use TextEdit. On Windows, there’s Notepad. We’ve been using this type of format for years, and it works well. Naturally, it’s non-specific, but the fact that you can easily store information, paste it in, write quick lists, etc, makes it good for our own use.
