One email I look forward to receiving every year is my Todoist Year in Review!
Yes, I am a total productivity geek. I love making myself lists of things I need to do and then checking items off my list throughout the day. I use Todoist to manage my personal to dos, my work to dos, things I want to delegate to other people, articles to read or videos to watch while I’m traveling, etc., etc. If it crosses my mind, it goes in Todoist!
So, it wasn’t a huge surprise for me to see that I made the top 1% of all Todoist users!
Here are a few of the other highlights my report included this year:
Daily, Weekly, Monthly Task Count
I have two daily checklists set up in Todoist — one for work and one for my personal life. My work daily checklist includes things like: clear email inbox, clear Todoist inbox, clear Tweetdeck streams, etc. My personal daily checklist includes things like: read 10 pages of a non-fiction book, hit 10,000 steps, take vitamin. These are all of the basic things I want to do each day. Then I have other lists based on projects and priorities. My day basically revolves around my lists in Todoist.
Most Productive Day of the Week:
I’m typically in meetings all day on Mondays, so I think that tends to result in Tuesdays being a high focus / high productivity day for me.
Most Productive Time of the Day:
This was a funny stat to see. At first I thought, sheesh, don’t I work after 8am!? But, as I thought about it, I realized why this happens. I normally start working at 7am, so I think my productivity peaks at 8am because I check off all of my quick and easy daily tasks between 7 and 8:30am or so. Then I start getting into more detailed tasks and projects that take longer to work on and complete.
Productivity Measured Throughout the Year:
Being the productivity geek that I am, this chart makes me so happy. I love to see how much I get done on a consistent basis. Also, I’m hoping for even more dark green next year!
What do you use to keep track of your to do’s? Do you need to get better at getting things done this year?
