So, I'm finding that my memory is either not what it used to be, or at least not what I once imagined it was. I like to think I just have more to remember than I used to, so it takes longer to find all of it. However I choose to look at it, the fact remains that I do have a lot of information to remember, and I'm finding myself more and more in need of reliable check lists.
Mine need to be web-based (because I'm not always working from my home computer), and they need to be accessible on my smart phone. They also need to be easy to use, formatable, and easily updatable from anywhere - sometimes by more than one user. I've found that Google Docs is a good solution.
There are plenty of previously-filed templates for checklists, or you can create your own using either the "document" (which is more like Word) or "spreadsheet" (which is more like Excel) setting. Above is one I like: The "Smart but Scattered Checklist" by Albert Lee.
If you find that you really enjoy creating these templates, creating these templates and might also be a good way to network and develop your online digital profile in your marketing niche.
As with all Google Docs, these checklists can be accessed from any computer with internet access, including your smart phone, and can be accessed by anyone you give permission to (or they can be set to private). They can be a great way to stay organized and up-to-date on those daily tasks.
