I LOVE to do lists. Even though they can be quite frustrating (it seems like I'm adding to it more than I'm checking things off most of the time...) to see how much I have to do, the feeling I get when I can check something off of the list is amazing! I'm constantly trying to find more effective ways to help me remember what I need to do and what I'd like to get done.
I'm sure that many of you, like me, have many lists going at once. There's the one on my desk at school, the one in my planner, the notebook on my kitchen counter, the notes typed quickly into the memo app on my phone....and then there's always the occasional item or two scribbled on my "palm pilot" (read, the back of my hand).
In a course I am taking this summer, I learned about a google tool that I am excited to use and excited to tell you about it so you can check it out too! While logged into your google account, go to keep.google.com. The beauty of this is that where ever you are you can log into your account and see these notes you've written. You can even get an app for your android or iphone! These notes can be organized by color, you can add a picture to the top of it, you can create lists, or write down something that you need to remember. If you have written something that you would like to put into a document, you can do that with a couple clicks. If you'd like to share information or an idea with another person, you can do that. If you'd like to organize your notes and lists by category labels, you can do that too! It is such a flexible tool!
As you are getting ready for a new school year, check this tool out. I know I am! I'm looking forward to not having to keep track of my paper lists this year! Thank you Google! I might be able to see what color my desk is a little more often this year. :) ;)
