The Today View
In the image above you can see the main task view and I start every day with it set to the Today view, I selected this from the panel above the three tabs at the top left of the screen. So we can see that there are a few tasks, this is where the magic happens. The first task is there through automation. The card ‘Todoist to concur each day’ was on my In Progress board on Trello, when I moved it across to the Currently Writing list, IFTTTT kicked in and knew I was working on it now and added it to Today in Todoist. Clever isn’t it. My next step is to create automation so that when I tick off the task as complete Trello moves it from the Currently Writing List to the Published List, I’ll get there! You will also notice the tomato symbol that is because I use the app Pomello which lets me integrate the Pomodoro timer in with my Trello account. Let me know if you would like to know more about Pomello in another post. You can see an explanation of the Pomodoro technique on here on Wikipedia
. Next, we have a task from the errands list, to collect a parcel that I have been emailed to say is in the letterbox. This was a simple task that I have already done while taking a break from the first task, Pomello lets you switch between functions, so it gives an accurate record of how long it takes you to do things. The next three tasks all have the little-twisted arrow symbols by the category to show they are daily jobs. Clearing my email Inbox is in the goals category from my Slay Productivity list. The Commun.it marketing is to do with Twitter and engaging with my followers and helping to promote the blog. The third one, read 5% of my current novel is again from my goals board. I have been enjoying YouTube so much that I have got out of the habit of reading on my Kindle. So I set a (hopefully) simple target this year to get through six books in the year, I will then increase this to nine next year and so forth until I am happy with my reading level.
