One of the tools that I found especially useful in my last job was Process Street. It’s great for recurring tasks, but not so much for ad hoc stuff. I didn’t really do enough ad hoc stuff to need a tool that excelled in that area.
I think that the routine made me a little complacent.
These days, most of what I do is new or infrequent tasks, there is little routine besides one weekly and one monthly report. It’s taken me a while to realise that maybe I need an organised structure for my tasks. They’re in Todoist, but I just can’t engage with the UI there, it feels too limited.
Although I’ve been managing, I could be doing far better, which brings me back to… Trello!
Yes, the tool I’d all but abandoned is gaining back its appeal. Today as I was learning a new work process, I felt compelled to add the steps into Trello. It’s a really useful tool for infrequent tasks that contain many steps. Certainly better than a PDF or Word document!
So, time to get back into practise using a tool that pretty much saved my sanity in the past!
